New data shows coal and gas companies are massively underreporting their methane emissions Australia-wide. Methane is 86 times more potent than CO2 over a 20-year-period. It’s polluting the air we breathe, accelerating the destruction of Australian nature and making climate disasters like fires, floods and extreme heat even worse.

Write an email to federal Climate Change Minister Chris Bowen and ask him to:

  1. Crack down on the coal and gas companies secretly leaking dangerous methane emissions
  2. and remind him that super pollutants like methane are harming our climate, health and nature so we can’t afford to open new coal or gas projects.

Our Climate Minister is currently considering new methane regulations. Us speaking up now can influence him to strengthen regulations so they force coal and gas polluters to tell the truth about their methane emissions.

Keeping polluters accountable for their methane emissions means climate-polluting companies like Woodside and Santos will be forced to slash their climate pollution and find it much harder to open a new coal or gas project.

Write your email to the Minister now: crack down on coal and gas companies’ methane emissions.
