Kooyong Votes Climate
Has Clive Palmer just bought himself a Premier's decision on Adani?
Palasczcuk is now calling for fast tracking the mine approval process by this Friday!
If the Adani mine is built then Gina and Palmer will get their pay offs for multi multi million dollar electoral spending.
We can't let billionaire profits trump our kids' future - the Adani mine will devastate water, farming, irreversibly damage the Great Artesian Basin and worst of all, completely wreck one of the oldest living cultures on the planet.
This project just can't go ahead - we can't afford to unleash the fourth largest source of carbon the planet just because mining magnates have the measure of the electoral process.

We made climate number one in Kooyong this election!
Kooyong is no longer a safe Liberal seat.
Voters received over 80,000 scorecards from our campaign and we created dozens of new teams for door knocking and climate conversations. The community embraced the climate message, with a big swing towards climate candidates.
Kooyong Votes Climate extends a massive thanks to our 544 volunteers, including 300 of us who are new to climate campaigning. Thanks also to those who hosted hundreds of fence signs and contributed to a full scale grassroots preroll and polling day campaign.

9th June: Kooyong Votes Climate Campaign PowerUp
We will celebrate and review our ground breaking campaign that made climate the number one local election issue, and work together in teams to keep our momentum going and plan the next phase.
We value your contribution: June 9th, 1-5pm for our Next Steps: Campaign PowerUp workshop.
Join us to contribute to forming and strengthening these exciting local campaigns!
- Local action - quick wins, where we will gather community round doable, exciting PV/retrofit projects, and explore options to increase PV uptake, promote low carbon transport and improve our parks and wetlands, and reduce local emissions.
- We made it the climate election in Kooyong. How do we springboard into effective 100 First Days climate action?
- Join our powerful StopAdani Kooyong team as we ramp up our efforts to protect Australia from the threat of 29 billion tons of Galilee carbon. Sign up on our StopAdani page.
- Gas. With a global glut, domestic consumers are being gouged, and the gas companies have the gall to call for more gas projects. And gas flaring and leakage is the major cause of the rise in Australian emissions. Let's get moving to promote clean cheaper renewables and stop unnecessary and dangerous gas expansion. We will protect our land and water.
It's time to put our kids first.
