In March, Greens MP Michael Berkman introduced a Private Member’s Bill, the Queensland Climate Transition Bill 2023.

The proposed legislation seeks to:

  • Ban new coal, oil, and gas resources projects in Queensland
  • Set a 75 per cent emissions reduction target by 2030, to reach Net Zero by 2035
  • Legislate a target to phase out fossil fuel exports by 2030
  • Create a new Queensland Climate Transition Authority, to consult and work with affected workers and communities on a fair transition plan

This Bill, which will be debated in the Queensland Parliament in 2024, glorifies the role that ‘renewables’ are expected to play in Australia’s energy future.
