Queensland has one of the weakest emission reduction targets in the country, and we have more proposed coal mines proposed than any other jurisdiction in the world. It's embarrassing!
A new report we've just released alongside Lock the Gate found that fugitive emissions—that’s gas leaking out of coal and gas extraction sites—will be the largest source of emissions in Queensland by 2030. That’s right, preventable gas leaks will produce more emissions than our electricity system, agriculture and transport.
For a safe climate future, we urgently need the Queensland Government to increase the State's emission reduction targets, toughen pollution restrictions on existing coal and gas projects, and stop approving new fossil fuel projects. Write to the Premier today!
