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

Recent reports of apparent tipping points having already been reached – and the consequences, some now irreversible – should surely close up shop for denialists and initiate urgent efforts worldwide to accelerate the uptake of renewable energies and electrification of everything possible. While a lot of damage is now unavoidable exacerbation of the situation with politics continuing to prevent good government should be an obnoxious concept to all in a position to minimise the consequences of any residual fossil fuel dependence. History will rightfully crucify decision makers who have allowed this situation to develop, but that will be of no relief for those forced to wear the consequences.

As unprecedented floods, fires, and heatwaves continue to hit Australia and the rest of the world, climate action and protection of biodiversity are more urgent than ever. The so-called “gas-fired recovery” is rapidly becoming the “gas-fired planetary cremation”.

I urge the Queensland Government to do everything in its power to push for the strongest possible climate and environmental control through a whole of government approach to reducing climate pollution, protecting residual natural environment, and leaving fossil fuel technology to history where it now belongs.

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.
