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.

Take this opportunity to tell the Queensland Premier that you won't support spending a single dollar on propping up a climate-wrecking, water-guzzling mega coal mine in the Galilee Basin.

Dear Qld Premiere Annastacia Palaszczuk,

I do not support the Queensland government using public money, providing services or subsidies in the form of cash handouts, royalty holidays, discounts, loans or otherwise to assist the Adani corporation in any way to build the Carmichael mine in the Galilee Basin.
