Minister Frydenberg, revoke Adani's environmental approvals #FrydoStopAdani

Dear Minister Frydenberg
Please reverse the environmental approval for the dirty Adani coal mine, to help save the Reef and reduce global warming. You have the power!
Under section 145 of the Environmental Protection & Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act, you have the power to revoke this mine approval if you believe it will result in a significant impact on the Great Barrier Reef that was not identified when the approval was granted in 2015.

Why is this important?

This is critical to help save the Great Barrier Reef and reduce global warming from the burning of fossil fuels, in this case poor quality thermal coal from the massive planned Adani mine, which if in Melbourne would extend from Broadmeadows in the north to Carrum down the bayside . This cause is the environmental fight of our times for Australia. if Adani is blocked, the massive low-quality coal deposits in the Galilee basin may never be able to be mined. Mr Frydenberg is saying he is advised there is no new evidence on which to base a review. We think he refers to advice from his Department in 2016. There is substantial new evidence since then, as stated in legal advice to the Australian Conservation Foundation. We in the Kooyong Climate Change Alliance are his electors. We are doing this as both a street petition and this on-line version. In 2017 we delivered over 900 surveys to him with requests to stop the mine. He said he could do nothing. HE CAN! Please JOIN US in holding the Minister to account. PLEASE ADDRESS A STATEMENT TO THE MINISTER IN "YOUR REASONS" BOX BELOW.

How it will be delivered

It will be delivered in person at his electorate office together with gathered street petitions, at a meeting about September, as we did in 2017 for the Survey. We aim to exceed the 1000 achieved last year. We will have a media release with pictures.
WHEN YOU SIGN, PLEASE OPT IN TO RECEIVE EMAILS via Community Run to let you know how the petition is going, and the Minister's response. You will not get frequent emails. Please also put your phone number so we can contact by SMS.

Reasons for signing

  • We are caretakers of an environment that has been and will be here far longer than us. Government has collective duty of care and should be stopping mining and investing in other non-fossil fuel industries that benefit Australia and our environment. What duty of care will Adani have? I suspect absolutely none and Frydenberg condones this. Shame
  • The great barrier reef isn't just a tourist attraction, it's the home of thousands of marine animals
  • Coal is a resource of a bygone era. To ensure a safe future, economically and environmentally we need to invest in renewable energy technology. If we do not, Australia will become increasingly uncompetitive. Approval of Adani is environmentally and socially reckless, reckless on a global scale. We need a government that plans for the future, not election cycles! Hon. Minister Frydenberg, start to take action and lead for our future. A better, safer, clearner future.
