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

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.
