Waratah Coal is working to have a new, dirty coal power station approved in Queensland.
The Queensland Government has the ability to refuse Waratah Coal’s proposed 1400 mega-watt coal fired power station, but has yet to do so.
It’s time to take action.
Write to the Queensland Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development Steven Miles and ask him to 'call in' this project and ensure its impacts to our shared climate, the Great Barrier Reef, communities and future generations are properly assessed.
The proposed 1,400 MW ultra-supercritical power station will be built adjacent to the proposed a 40mt/y Galilee Coal Project, near Alpha in west central Queensland. The power station will emit 810 kg of CO2-e/MWh and run for 50 years. Development of new dirty coal power station will limit Australia’s ability to fulfil its international greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets. It will make it impossible for Queensland to meet its Climate Action Plan targets announced in July 2021.
