Add your voice to call on our elected representatives to support clean energy

Our new coal and water report exposes just how much of our country’s freshwater coal corporations consume: a shocking 383 billion litres per year.

This is equivalent to the water use of all Sydneysiders or every Queensland household.

All that water to dig and burn coal – the biggest driver of climate damage, which makes droughts in this dry continent worse.

Coal uses 120 times more water than wind or solar to produce the same amount of electricity.

As our governments make choices about spending public money on creating a more resilient future, the priority is clear – more clean energy, not coal!

Sign the petition calling on our elected representatives – state and federal – to support the shift from coal to clean energy.


To our elected representatives,

  • Source all our power from sun, wind, and water by 2030
  • Phase out polluting coal and gas-fired power and rule out new coal mines or gas fields
  • Help affected workers and communities prepare for jobs with a future
  • Make sure the transition is fair so everyone, everywhere has access to clean renewable energy

I want change to occur now, I am sick of waiting for Government to act. Climate Change is impacting on our environment and we will not have a future that our kids can look forward to.

peter muller; I Don’t beleive water in the aresian basins ar worth risking for the short term Cash benifit from the coal and natural gas industry in this country. In this time we dont need the added burden climate change brings by the increase in mining coal and more bloody gas. Future australians will value the water poisoned by more, lost in the basins. The risk of poisoned water tables is too great
