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.”

The majority of Australians are imploring government to transition from fossil fuels to prevent the devastating effects of climate change. When will you show that you can hear us, heed the warnings of the science, stop making self serving excuses in support of the fossil fuel industries and do the right thing for the well being of life on earth.

Stop destroying Australia- do not sell or give it away. Preserve habitat and species diversity. Encourage green economics and let the media tell the truth. Adani does not have the interest of Queenslanders or Australians at heart. A few rancid jobs is not worth selling out for
