Support a sun-powered Queensland

This petition had 1,636 supporters

It’s an election year in the sunshine state. Premier Palaszczuk, it’s time to move Queensland out of the dirty energy past and into the clean energy future. We want to power our lives with renewable energy, not coal.

Join the Sun-Powered Queensland campaign to call on the Queensland Government to:

  • Champion large-scale clean energy projects across our state
  • Make our renewable energy target law
  • Phase out coal and gas-fired power
  • Help people who work in affected industries and their communities prepare for jobs for the future

Are you in?

Queensland is called the sunshine state with good reason.

Queensland has big open skies, not too many clouds and a big ball of energy that just shows up in the sky each day. In just six hours, it gives the world’s deserts more energy than all humans use in a year.

Powering our lives with energy from the sun and wind just makes sense. It doesn’t harm our climate, fuel coral bleaching or pollute our air and water. It’s affordable and good for our communities. It’ll create lots of good jobs in new industries with a big future. In fact, it already is.

But in Queensland right now, the Palaszczuk government doesn’t seem to get it. Our elected representatives are backing Adani’s giant polluting coal mine and dithering on clean energy. They're putting our climate, communities and reef at risk.

It’s an election year and Premier Palaszczuk needs to hear, loud and clear, we Queenslanders want clean energy, not coal.
