Billionaire polluter Gautam Adani, Prime Minister Turnbull and Queensland Premier Palaszczuk want to dig one of the world’s biggest coal mines.

But Australians don’t want Adani’s mine.

The Australian Conservation Foundation community is challenging the federal government approval of Adani’s giant Carmichael coal mine in the federal court. 

Since this mine was approved, global warming has fuelled the worst coral bleaching on record on the Great Barrier Reef. We must cut pollution to give our reef, people and planet a chance.

Adani’s mine risks the livelihoods of 70,000 people whose work relies on a healthy reef. Governments have a responsibility to create a future where our reef, communities and wildlife all thrive.

The decision to approve this mine sits with Minister Frydenberg. He has a choice – let big polluting companies like Adani get away with it, or listen to the community and reject this mine.

Sign the petition to tell the Federal Minister for Environment and Energy, Josh Frydenberg, to:

Reject Adani’s Carmichael coal mine and create strong new laws to protect our Great Barrier Reef.

This is crazy! Show some common sense and long term vision. Coal mines and there finite benefit are not worth the long term damage to the reef, the environment as a whole and to Australia’s reputation. This must stop surely?

A lot could be done in Nth Qld to create jobs and infrastructure with $1BN. A lot could be done without threat to the Great Barrier Reef. No coal mines in the Galiee Basin only non polluting energy-sources.

Why would you want to have coal mine – we should be using renewable energy! Move with the time PM and Premier Palasczuk.

Mr Prime Minister
I cannot believe that an AUSTRALIAN prime minister and his colleagues can even consider supporting a billionaire, from another country, and his plans for a COAL MINE which will cause untold damage to OUR Great Barrier Reef.!! Where is your loyalty to our own country?? We Australian people do not want this Adani mine or any other mine for that matter. OUR money is needed for OUR country, not to fill the pockets of some oversease billionaire who couldn’t care less about our land, culture or environment.
