TO THE HONOURABLE THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House: The Carmichael coal mine project in the Galilee Basin in Central Western Queensland and the proposed expansion of coal ports along the Great Barrier Reef coast,.

We therefore ask the House to: consider the widespread and destructive environmental, health and cultural impact the project will cause and pass legislation that will prevent the project going ahead. To review the modelling of the social and economic benefits that have been used to support the Federal Government's proposal of a discounted loan of one billion dollars for the construction of the railway line to the Carmichael mine.
