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

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?!

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.
