Clive Palmer’s owned Waratah Coal has applied to unleash a new climate-wrecking coal fired power station for 50 years! On 2 November 2023 the Queensland Government environment department refused the environmental approval for the proposed Galilee Power Station, whilst the state development department issued conditions to support its approval.
Queensland’s Deputy Premier Steven Miles has the sole power to approve or reject this climate-wrecking project but has delayed the decision for 2 years.

The Queensland Government's decision report said:
- "The Project, as proposed, would sit among the top 100 greenhouse gas emission sources in Australia.
- The Project as proposed would be the second highest emitter of total scope 1 (being the greenhouse gas emissions that are the emissions released to the atmosphere as a direct result of the activity, or series of activities at a facility level). in comparison with Queensland’s existing coal-fired power stations.
- The Project is expected to impede Queensland’s achievement of its renewable energy targets of 50% by 2030 and 70% by 2032, and the national and Queensland commitments to achieve net zero emissions by 2050."
Approval of the Galilee Power Station will be disastrous for Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef. Now is the time to act - Australia and Queensland doesn't need another dirty coal fired power station!
Join our campaign to prevent the Queensland Government allowing Waratah Coal to unleash a coal-fired power station in the Galilee Basin.Become a volunteer
