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 is past time that Queensland took the present climate crisis seriously. Please don’t listen to the rich and powerful but to the people you are supposed to represent. We want serious action to reduce the use and export of fossil fuels.

I want Qld to become a climate champion because our lifestyle and that of our children requires it to be. Qld needs to transition away from fossil fuel production and consumption and utilise the abundant natural resources within the state to produce, storage, transport and consume clean, green renewable energy. Our children may one day be able to thank us for putting their future ahead of our own.

If it can make a difference and isn’t just greenwashing and contains tangible and meaningful targets for them, then why not? The time for this was yesterday after all.

Even a blind person can see that if we don’t stop fossil fuel mining and land clearing we are dooming future generations to the worst nature can deliver.

For far to long have governments been concerned with mining royalties and large scale projects. What good is any of it when we destroy the earth.

The longer we wait to act, the higher the cost. Higher fiscal cost, higher mortality, more of what makes our lives worthwhile gone forever.
