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 or let the opportunity slip through our fingers.

Sign the petition. We need thousands of us to call on our state government to invest in the solutions and make Queensland a climate and nature champion. Together Queensland CAN!

For more information on how Queensland can slash pollution and create jobs in future industries this decade, see the brand new Queensland CAN! report commissioned by ACF, 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 creating 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

Jobs we can create in climate solutions

COAL KILLS from pollution to global warming. Politicians who continue to support coal mining for burning will one day be charged with a Crime against Humanity.

Coal has many other uses from lithium to graphene. Why are we not supporting these well documented, value added processes?

ALL of Qld needs to wake up and attack climate change with a vengeance. Summer is coming – heat and floods – CLIMATE CHANGE IS HERE! No such nonsense as 2030 or 2050 – IT’S HERE. If we are to survive then we have to OUTLAW COAL MINES, STOP CUTTING DOWN OLD GROWTH FOREST,

Queensland can lead the long overdue move to renewable energy. We need government leadership now more than ever to protect our state, our country and the world.

I want Queensland to be a climate champion because we are in the middle of a climate crisis with no more time to lose and we are well placed to be one of the nation’s and world’s leaders when it comes to renewables and green alternatives to fossil fuels. We can make it happen.

Why not lead the way and know that this too will create jobs for all Queenslanders.
Let us create a supportive natural way of living and support our leaders to implement the best knowledge to support nature.
Lynette 2022-09-02 10:59:25 +1000
Queensland has excellent and extensive renewable energy resources and has no need to continue fossil fuel use. Investment in hydrostorage and batteries, and EV transport would make Qld a fossil fuel free state, provide jobs and investment opportunities and lead to it being a world leader in protecting life on earth from the life threatening global warming

When it comes to climate pollution, near enough is not good enough. It’s a matter of life or death, Please take this matter seriously.
Kathy 2022-09-02 10:57:33 +1000
I want Queensland to protect nature in many ways. Qld can be effective in nature protection by being a renewables champion instead of promoting fossil fuels.
