Respecting and protecting your property rights

Sign the petition for a Senate Inquiry into the impacts of transmission lines on regional Australia.

Wherever you look, the rights that should naturally be yours are increasingly being encroached upon by Labor Governments pursuing ideology ahead of sound policy. Electricity and water are cases in point.

The Albanese Labor Government is proposing to carve around 28,000 kilometres of transmission lines across Australia to connect renewables to the grid.  That’s the equivalent of travelling from Melbourne to Perth four times, uprooting trees and native wildlife habitat in their path.   

Wide Bay is shaping up as a key battleground with proposed renewable energy projects and their new transmission lines threatening to divide and cut scars across communities including Anderleigh, Curra, Woolooga, Borumba, and Kilkivan, if they are allowed to proceed.

So called green energy doesn’t come free from environmental, social, and economic consequences. 

The proposed invasion of Powerlink’s pylon parasites into Wide Bay communities threatens to trample over private landholdings, prime agricultural land, and the habitats of protected native species. If the Queensland Government played to our State’s natural resource strengths, we’d have cheap, reliable, dispatchable base load power without ripping up trees and planting transmission towers in their place.

Seven times the National and Liberal Parties in the Senate have moved to establish a Senate Inquiry into the effects of renewable energy transmission lines on regional and rural communities, and seven times Labor, The Greens Political Party, and Climate 200 funded Senator David Pocock have slammed the Senate doors shut on letting our communities have their say.

I encourage you to show your support for a Senate inquiry into the environmental, social, and economic impacts of transmission lines on Wide Bay communities by signing the petition below.
