As bushfires rage across the country, the Queensland government is considering a secret deal with Adani that could mean the coal corporation pockets hundreds of millions of dollars of public money for its climate-wrecking mine.

Analysis by The Australia Institute shows Adani’s special coal royalty deal could be worth between $250 and $700 million dollars. The Palaszczuk Government has refused to reveal the terms of this shady arrangement, claiming it’s too confidential for us to know about.

Our elected representatives have a responsibility to create a future where our communities, reef and wildlife thrive, not prop up dirty coal.
Add your name to this open letter to send the Premier a clear message — no dirty royalty deal for Adani:

“Dear Premier,

During the last Queensland election you promised there would be no public money for Adani’s climate-wrecking coal mine.

If Adani’s mine goes ahead it would unleash billions of tonnes of pollution, at a time when we must rapidly phase out coal and take urgent action on the climate crisis.

We ask you to keep your election promise and not cut a special royalty deal with Adani.”

Dear Premier Palaszczuk, I love our country and the wonderful and completely individual biodiversity we have. The environment of Australia can’t be replaced and we desperately need to change the way our country works.
Please do not continue to consider working with Adani, our country can’t be saved once it burns to ash.

Please, the last thing our country needs after this bushfire crisis we are going through is another coal mine further influencing climate change and making my bushfire seasons even more dangerous. Please listen to your conscience and common sense and help to save our country.

Please PLEASE stop this plan. We need to think long term, beyond the short electoral cycle and creatively come up with an affective plan to transition coal mining jobs into renewable energy. We can do this!

Adani’s coal mine will be a problem for the entire world. Please, show that Australia can contribute to a better future, or at least not consciously make it worse.
