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

QLD needs a better environmental reputation. We should aim to exceed other states in conservation and climate action. History is over.

Go big QLD – we have always punched above our weight let’s do it again. We could be renamed the ‘sustainable state’.

The survivable planet for future generations depends on urgent climate action now. We cannot afford fossil fuel extraction projects that would potentially cost the earth.

We need to champion climate change initiatives and every aspect of nature conservation to ensure that future generations may continue to live and thrive in our Queensland paradise – and most importantly that our flora and fauna – especially endangered species such as the koala – continue to have ample habitat in which to survive and thrive for centuries to come. We need to act now and act decisively lest our iconic wildlife and habitats go the way of the Tasmanian tiger forever.

I want Qld to be a climate and nature champion, because I want a viable future for my son, and all the young people. I think Qld can become a leader and example of best practice for the rest of Australia and the Asia-Pacific in climate friendly climate resilient sustainable futures

I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because it has the potential to become a renewable energy superpower, the land to do so, beautiful nature as well, the people power to achieve this, and because it is the way forward going into the future and we don’t want to be left behind.

Queensland can become a nature champion when they stop supporting coal mining, create transitional jobs for miners and truely climate change
Amanda 2022-09-16 21:02:57 +1000
The scientists predicted global warming, caused by excess greenhouse gas in our atmosphere, would bring climate change. Time has proven them to be correct. It’s here. It’s killing people.

No more flip flopping about what action to take. Follow the science and act now on fast change to clean energy. I will not vote for any political party which does not take decisive and immediate action to transition to 100% clean energy well before 2050 . I will actively campaign against any party seen to be halfhearted in it’s actions to achieve this goal.
Hugh 2022-09-16 04:07:09 +1000
I want Queensland to become a climate and nature champion because change has to start from the top. Big polluting companies need legally backed policy changes to ensure that environmentally sound decisions. No more coal mines, no mines endangering ground water and the Great Barrier Reef. No more oil ridges off our coasts. More financial backing for technology advances and systematic change for sustainable practices across all parts of society.
