As the world moves towards Net Zero Emissions the demand for Australia's coal and gas will decline. The Australian and Queensland government's are ignoring reality and pushing ahead with plans to open new coal mines and gas projects. That puts workers, businesses and communities at risk. When the last coal boom ended coal mining communities in Queensland witnessed massive increases in unemployment, business liquidations, rapid declines in house prices, increased family violence, increased suicide and many other consequences. If there isn't a plan for an orderly closure of coal mines and gas fields then workers, businesses and communities will suffer again.
Sign our petition to the Queensland Premier and the Australian Prime Minister calling for a plan for an orderly transition away from fossil fuels and protection for workers, businesses and communities involved in those industries.
