For more than a century the world has known that burning fossil fuels causes climate change and that it will cause serious problems for all life on earth. Despite the warnings from scientific experts, most of the world's prolitical leaders have chosen to ignore climate change. We can now see the consequences of those failures.

Sea levels are rising in the Pacific, making it much more difficult for people to live on low lying atolls. Glaciers are retreating around the globe, threatening freshwater supplies. Bushfires are becoming more intense around Australia even burning our rainforests. The Great Barrier Reef ...

For more than a century the world has known that burning fossil fuels causes climate change and that it will cause serious problems for all life on earth. Despite the warnings from scientific experts, most of the world's prolitical leaders have chosen to ignore climate change. We can now see the consequences of those failures.

Sea levels are rising in the Pacific, making it much more difficult for people to live on low lying atolls. Glaciers are retreating around the globe, threatening freshwater supplies. Bushfires are becoming more intense around Australia even burning our rainforests. The Great Barrier Reef has been bleached twice in the past decade, killing over 50 per cent of its corals. Unprecedented droughts have affected large parts of our continent. The list is goes on. 

Scientists have warned that we must make deep and rapid cuts in fossil fuel emissions yet Australian governments still support fossil fuel mining and export, mainly coal and gas. Our campaign aims to have Australian governments declare a Climate Emergency, to rule out any new fossil fuel export projects (including the Adani mine) and to rapidly transition our country to become a clean energy powerhouse for the world. 

Please join us in this fight for our future.

Adani Water Grab

Every year,  Adani's North Galilee Water Scheme will drain 12.5 billion litres of fresh water from the Suttor River to wash low-grade thermal coal at the Adani mega-mine.

This is more water than 122,000 residents of Mackay use annually.

Every year,  Adani's North Galilee Water Scheme will drain 12.5 billion litres of fresh water from the Suttor River to wash low-grade thermal coal at the Adani mega-mine.

This is more water than 122,000 residents of Mackay use annually.

You can help pressure the federal environment minister, Susan Ley to explain why her government has yet again cut a special deal for Adani, breaking her promise to ensure Adani stacks up both environmentally and financially.

Together we will demand that Adani receives no more sweetheart deals and dodgy approvals. The last thing our government should be doing in this time of historic drought is using critical water resources to wash coal.

Please take a moment to email the minister today.
