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

I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because this is the only way. I have been impacted by the recent floods and I can see how terrible the state has been to prepare, help and prevent these types of events. We must stop fossil fuel mining. We must prepare for the future with renewables and protect our environment.

This makes sense, is future-proofing and can create an amazing State – we need this good news and good example. More nature protection, more renewable energy, a circular economy for finance, waste, for all the generations to come

I want Qld to be a nature and climate champion because all of Australia should be protected for our wildlife and our children.
What is the point of living in a desperately dirty, destructive environment with threats of floods and fires wiping us out.
We know we have to do our very best to reverse the damage as soon as possible, don’t we?

Queensland has the capacity to show the world our credentials for green energy and protected national and marine parks. It will be a leader in the economics of Eco-tourism.

Queensland has so many unique features that we must protect for the good of all humankind. We expect Brazilians to protect the Amazon and yet we allow development that threatens the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree. Now Toondah Harbour mangroves and wetlands is about to be concreted to provide water view apartments for a select few, destroying habitat for the gravely endangered Eastern Curlew. It is madness and it has to be reversed. Come on Queensland, lead the way!

We need to address the fact that so much of our suburban wild life has need devastated by our suburban growth. The density of our housing leaves no room for mature snd replanting of trees takes years to grow to maturity. In that time our wild life has no habitat so die out. There is no respect for old growth forest leaving our wild life little prospect of nesting material.
Our people need education in why this is necessary and how and why they need to respect the bush that is remaining.
