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

Queensland has a lot to lose if the world does not rein in carbon emissions. We are very vulnerable, as recent disasters have shown. If wealthy communities don’t get our act in order, what hope that the rest of the world will act?

It’s time we look towards the future and stop relying on fossil fuels, land clearing, loss of habitat for our wildlife.

I want Queensland to be a climate and nature leader because we have a state blessed with ample sunshine, beauty and many people who care about nature. We could be a renewable energy superpower.

It is a beautiful state and everyone should be able to see it for what it looks like.

I want Queensland to become a climate and nature Mecca because time is running out to take action against digging and burning fossil fuels, jobs will be created and economic benefit will flow from the transition, the tourism industry, already a big employer, will benefit from a pristine environment where native animals can thrive in forests that capture carbon.

Our natural environment is so beautiful and worth protecting and we need to make some pretty huge changes to meet the existing carbon reduction targets
Cassandra 2022-09-02 13:13:13 +1000
Because we all ( humans as well as wildlife) deserve to live in a healthy sustainable environment and for generations to follow. We need to look after our planet and country and state of Qld .

Queensland has got such magnificent flora and fauna. Let’s teach people that this is wonderful and important, and needs to be respected and therefore protected. We are part of nature. It’s not an US and THEM scenario.

If we don’t start taking climate change seriously it will be too late. Climate scientists are telling us we are virtually at that point now. After the extreme weather events we have seen over the past couple of years, both in Australia and globally, you have to ask , how much more evidence does the government need before it acts?!
