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.”

Do the right thing. This is not your country to mess with

Tax payers should not have to shoulder the costs for a mine that citizens do not want. This mine will damage our environment, take water needed for our farmers, and be managed by known environmental vandals.
This mine is not a long term, sustainable option.
The Australian taxpayers should not be paying for it.

Save Queensland’s unique natural beauty. Stop this ADANI mine and let them take their business elsewhere.

Climate change is real, Adani should never have been given the green light to go ahead. Country, Environment and clean air before greedy company profits.

Climate change is real!!! The fact that the qld government is aware of this and what Adani does over seas is criminal and we all know it!!

Stop funding anything related to ADANI! We, the Australian people don’t want Adani! If the government knowns what’s good for them they will stop Adani from being here. The people will rise. We are already rising and fighting against this! Our tax payer dollars PAY YOUR WAGE! You should be listening to us!!! #StopAdani

Queenslander should not be paying for this earth destroying mine it’s bad enough the amount of water they take

Absolutely horrified that the Queensland government is continuing to collude with the Adani family to support the Carmichael mine. Ground water in Australia must not be given to mining companies. It must be studied by scientists & better understood as to how it replenishes. Many station bores in Qld that have existed for decades are drying up or becoming contaminated.

As elected representatives you all have a responsibility to ensure the future health of both communities and also the unique wildlife which creates billions of tourist dollars. Fossil fuels have that name because they took millions of years to create, it’s time to heavily invest in renewables and ensure both the jobs and health of the country.
