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.”

Please listen to the urgent message of the world’s top climate scientists who clearly state that political action must be taken to halt irreversible catastrophic climate change. Queensland and Australia must do whatever they can to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and this includes bringing a just end to coal mining. Do not give Adani taxpayers’ money in any grubby royalty deal. Adani’s corporate structure is known to exploit tax havens, thus ensuring Australia will not be honestly compensated for giving its coal to this company. I urge you to show integrity and just stewardship of our natural resources and common wealth.

Please stop coal mining in the Gallilee Basin. Invite large-scale SOLAR farms instead. Many more jobs, no more CO2, save ground water for FARMERS.
