Queenslanders, our sunshine state has the tools and talent to become a renewable energy superpower – and shift away from digging and burning fossil fuels that drive climate impacts.

Ramping up climate solutions now will create long-term jobs in our regions, help restore our incredible forests and slash climate pollution this decade.

But we need to act now and not let the opportunity slip through our fingers.

Sign the petition. We need thousands of us calling on our state government to invest in making Queensland a climate and nature champion.

Working together, Queensland CAN!

To learn more about how we replace coal and gas with clean energy 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:

  • Make our climate safe: Slash Queensland's climate pollution by at least half this decade; slash methane emissions from existing coal and gas infrastructure; ban new coal and gas infrastructure
  • Protect our nature: Establish an Environmental Protection Authority for Queensland; protect 100 hectares of Queensland forest this decade
  • Clean up our exports and create green jobs: Create a renewable-powered exports industry to replace coal and gas exports, with 100,000 climate-positive careers for communities; guarantee jobs for fossil fuel workers

Jobs we can create in climate solutions

A new government has given me hope. We have so much potential to lead the world in innovative sustainability. But we need a government committed to long term focus, not the next election. We’re ready to make sacrifices for our future.

I want to see Queensland become a climate and nature champion because if we don’t do the right thing in these areas our children’s futures will be blighted.

I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because we live in one of the best spaces on this planet and we just take it for granted. Look at our once glorious Barrier Reef its nothing like it was when I was a teenager we should be ashamed of what we are leaving to our next generations . Why can’t we be more diligent with whom we employ/ engage with an overseer of all funds used be more regulated and require frequent financial updates of what money is being spent on. It seems to me that the government is lobbied to support causes buckets of money are handed
with no external unbiased oversite. Next thing all their mates and family members get employed with no understanding and the money gets wasted. Why can’t we stop thinking oh that’s a good idea that will win us votes. Next thing like the French submarines project get wiped and oh, oh well there goes that 500 million but we can’t spend money where it needs to be. Mr Albanese I understand it’s hard and there are conflicting issues but why don’t we have a Member for Due Diligence that understands how to preview projects or requests for money. Renewable energy is Queensland’s absolute solution into the future.
PS. How about scrutinising the " Approved Providers of aged care as critically you scrutinise and regulate aged care facilities there is no time for care because the good providers are flat out doing the paper work to prove they are Doing the care. These regulations are a consequence of poor shonky providers. If we had half of the paper work nurses would be able to provide the care our elders deserve.
I know miracles of this proportion dont happen over night but ask the RNs in
Aged Care what they believe is needed and I bet they will not say more staff but LESS PAPER WORK/ Data collection
Put nurses back to what they do best caring. Not paper pushers. No truly send some one in to do a couple of rotating shifts and see what comes out Please

We only have one planet, come on Queensland

Be a leader it’s our duty to look after it🏝

I want QLD government to honour their contractual agreement to be of service to the people !! (not become & be dictated to by corporate institutions & interests).
We the people put the well being of our earth & her peoples, animals & plants before the old power & greed mongering of those with self serving economic agendas.
Step into new ways of being with us or be left behind to your own demise.
Choose well & wisely.
This is the right direction to move & if you don’t know it, get woke. Blessing also you

I had hoped federal Labor would make positive climate change without having to be pushed and forced by the greens and independents, and look how that turned out. But maybe the state government could show them how it’s done by no longer planning climate problematic construction goals.

I want 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 establishing an Environmental Protection Authority for Queensland to oversee and investigate environmental decisions

As a marine scientist, I have consistently advocated for a rational, inter-generational focused, response to climate and ocean disruption – our life-supporting biosphere, and our own society, depends on it. Governments have wasted decades in thrall to vested interests. Time is short.

Climate scientists have been warning about the catastrophic impacts of global warming/climate change for decades. They were called doomsday propagandists and their warnings labelled as hyperbole and worse. We are now witnessing the truth of the scientists’ words in cascading, devastating ‘natural’ disasters across the planet, driven by humankind’s addiction to fossil fuels and the abject failure of governments to pivot to renewable energy. We’ve squandered decades and now, time is no longer on our side.

Queensland’s targets (30% emissions reduction and 50% renewables) are not aligned with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5 -degree goal and fall short of other states such as NSW, Victoria and South Australia.
