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 should be the Australian leader in green innovation. Qld must act now to move forward to now only keep pace with others states, but to move to the front of the line. We have everything to loose if government acts otherwise.
Please-do it for our grandchildren and to build a prosperous future.

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,

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.
