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

It’s so urgent to start rethinking how we treat our environment as well as each other. our government needs to change its attitude and start investing heavily into alternative energy number one. Other governments are making a difference, why can’t we?

Queensland is where I live. I want climate warming to decrease. Queensland is already hot enough! I also want my large organic garden to thrive and my family and home not to be subject to more wild and damaging weather, higher electricity costs, and all the negative impacts of global warming.
