Queenslanders, we have an incredible opportunity. 

We know that our state's coal and gas is contributing to immense global climate harm - fuelling more severe droughts, floods, fires and storms across our communities and inflicting catastrophic damage on our precious Great Barrier Reef.

We're seeing that wherever in the world our gas and coal is burnt, whether it's here or overseas, we pay a terrible price at home.

But it doesn't have to be this way.

Our Sunshine State has the skills and the opportunity to transform itself into a renewable energy superpower, creating long-term jobs and economic security for our regions, and helping to restore and protect the natural places we all love. 

But we must act now - to stop new coal and gas projects, to turn away from fossil fuel exports and to slash emissions. 

Sign the petition. We need everyone to call on our state government to invest in making Queensland a climate and nature champion.

Working together, Queensland CAN!

To learn more about how we can ditch fossil fuels and create jobs in future industries now, explore the Queensland CAN! report commissioned by ACF, the Queensland Conservation Council and World Wildlife Fund Australia.

Petition demands

We call upon the Queensland Government to:

  1. Slash Queensland’s climate pollution by at least half this decade
  2. Make Queensland a renewable energy superpower and create 100,000 jobs in climate solutions
  3. Protect Queensland’s nature to store carbon and establish an Environmental Protection Authority for Queensland to oversee and investigate environmental decisions

Jobs we can create in climate solutions

Replanting so many native forests in Qld is so very important, both for the diversity of species of flora and fauna but also to help rebalance what has been lost. Revegetation projects should be our number one focus.

Global warming and flooding is already badly affecting our state and urgent action is needed to stop pollution and increase renewable energy

It’s time for Qld to become a renewable energy superpower, which will create many jobs, and establish a strong environmental Protection Authority to preserve our wildlife & forests.

I want Queensland to embrace the clean energy revolution – solar farms, pumped storage, wind turbines (BUILT IN APPROPRIATE PLACESNOT in the precious wilderness areas on the coastal side of the great dividing range), and big batteries. I want the Qld government to foster the new industries, manufacturing & mining to support the clean energy revolution. Build manufacturing in the regions so our children have skilled jobs and don’t have to go to the capital cities and coal miners can transition. Build solar panel’s & batteries and wind turbine components in Qld and export what we don’t need. Clean energy will take pressure off our precious Great Barrier Reef so hopefully future generations can watch this wonderland regenerate.
None of this will happen without the right policies and strong leadership with clear vision & goals.

Queensland must become a nature and climate champion to show how it can be done. Our tropical and temperate climate boasts high diversity and richness as well as vast renewable resources such as solar, wind and waves. An Olympic opportunity presents us with the chance to show the country and world that Queensland CAN lead the world in developing renewable energy, wildlife and environment protection and livability.
