Write to the Climate Minister: Commit to net zero by 2035

This is the decade for action

Our communities and wildlife are at the frontlines of climate impacts. Floods, heatwaves, droughts and bushfires are getting more frequent and more extreme.

People all over Australia are speaking out, building powerful movements and shifting community attitudes. Together we are pushing governments and corporations to step up – but bolder, more courageous action is urgently needed.

To protect the people and nature we love, we must replace polluting coal, gas and uranium with renewable energy from the sun and wind. It’s reliable, affordable and ready to power our lives and exports, and slash pollution now.

This is the decade that matters. Let’s act now to create a safe climate future for all.

This is the decade for climate solutions

Together we keep growing a thriving movement for climate action that wins hearts and minds. Now our decision-makers are starting to take action with us.

Our state and federal governments are lifting their emissions reduction targets, investing in large-scale, publicly-owned wind and solar power. But our governments are still spending billions in public money on coal, gas and oil. Australia continues to be the world’s biggest exporter of coal and liquified natural gas (LNG). No matter where coal and gas are burnt, it drives climate impacts here at home and across the world.

Climate damage is here, now. We urgently need bolder and more ambitious action. The solutions are here and they'll make our lives better. 

Ramping up climate solutions now will create a brighter, safe climate future. Let’s get on with it!

Everyday people taking action over many years has led us here. Donations, emails to decision-makers, putting signs up in our front yards, building power deep in communities.

Everyday people taking action is how we keep slashing pollution – and speed it up.

A climate bomb on the west coast

One of the most polluting new fossil fuel projects proposed in Australia is Woodside’s Scarborough gas project off the coast of Western Australia.

Each year, Scarborough would pollute 15 coal-fired power stations worth of emissions.

Gas is mainly made up of methane, which is a climate-heating gas way more potent than carbon dioxide. Most of the gas dug up at Scarborough would be burnt overseas. But no matter where coal and gas are burnt, it drives climate impacts here at home and across the world.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, ACF is taking Woodside to federal court to restrain construction on the Scarborough project. Donate now to help fund the court case.

If we win we’ll set a precedent that all new fossil fuel projects must be assessed for their climate impacts under our national environment law.

No matter where coal and gas are burnt, it drives climate impacts here at home and across the world.
