We want to live our lives to the full, while keeping our planet healthy and beautiful so our children can do the same. Revolutionising the way we use and produce energy is not only necessary; it is the safest and easiest way to protect our way of life. It’s time we chose a clean energy future.
Coal exported from Australia, when burnt, creates more greenhouse gas emissions than every other source of emissions in Australia combined. Right now, Australian mining companies are planning to double coal exports.

Coal threatens everything we love and treasure and we now have new research to establish this in our report "Silent Killers".
Abbot Point is at the heart of the battle to save the Great Barrier Reef from coal and climate change. Of the nine coal terminals proposed in the World Heritage Area four are proposed at Abbot Point.
