Post subject:  Change dot org Petition - Fund Reforestation not Coal Mines

Australia, my home country has two globally significant projects that are diametrically opposed in the futures they create.

The first is the Adani Coal mine, that both state and federal governments are funding.
If it is built, it will emit 4.5 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases, and consume 26 million litres of water per day!! that otherwise have gone into Great Artesian Basin aquifer.

Our Queensland state government is giving the water free for 70 years as soft funding.

The other project is arguably the world's largest Biodiverse Reforestation carbon sink project, run by Carbon Neutral.

It restores ecosystems in degraded farmland that was 90% cleared and now is turning into desert. 10,000 Hectares, 20 million native trees, shrubs and other flora planted.
It also produces local rural jobs and sequesters carbon.


The piece of activism I am asking of you is to sign a global petition to protest against the coal mine, to ask governments to fund reforestation jobs not coal jobs and to take up the opportunity to fund one native tree planting in this large project to go with your signature.
