Adani Mining Pty Ltd Carmichael Coal Mine - Galilee Basin

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Aaron White
77 Bunneys Lane

Total Signatures - 356

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 21/03/2017

Tabled Date: 21/03/2017

Responded By: Hon Dr Anthony Lynham MP on 20/04/2017

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that Adani's Carmichael mine will release sufficient pollution to drive climate change beyond the 2C limit as agreed internationally at the Paris Climate Summit. Environmental impacts, including destruction of the Great Barrier Reef, far outweigh any promised economic benefits. The Queensland community opposes this mine situated on the traditional lands of the Wangan and Jagalingou people.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:

  1. Reverse the Adani coal mine approval and withdraw consent for use of the site for extractive resources;
  2. Confirm no taxpayer funds are allocated for infrastructure to subsidise multi-national profits;
  3. Reinstate water legislation to protect the area's hydrology;
  4. Ensure government decisions are made in the community's best interests, which is to transition to a clean energy future.
