Ask our Politicians to Power-up Queensland With Clean, Renewable Energy
Did you know that burning coal is Australia’s leading cause of climate change?
Would you be surprised to know that one organisation is responsible for two-thirds of the coal burnt in Queensland?
Would you be more surprised to learn that organisation is our elected State government?
Of the eight coal power plants in Queensland, six are owned or controlled by the state government, and use two-thirds of the coal burned in Queensland. In other words, the State government literally has the power to make change happen.
Currently, Queensland is Australia’s biggest carbon emitter, and Australia’s electricity grid is one of the most polluting in the world. There is no such thing as “clean coal”. Every day we burn more dirty coal is another day of needless toxic pollution.
The Queensland Conservation Council is campaigning to ensure Queenslanders can look forward to a safe and prosperous future, where coal power stations are replaced by clean renewable energy.
