Burning polluting fuels is damaging the planet we call home

We all want to keep enjoying life on our beautiful planet – with abundant coral reefs, clean air and thriving communities. 

But by burning coal and gas, big polluting companies are damaging our climate and fuelling fire-storms, heatwaves, cyclones and floods.

This has to stop.

Our government must stop the big polluters burning coal and gas, and make a national plan to harvest all our energy from the sun and wind.

Clean energy is the solution

Clean energy from the sun and wind is here, right now, and it just makes sense. 

It doesn’t harm our climate, fuel coral bleaching or pollute our air and water. It’s affordable and good for our communities. 

It’s time for our governments to step up and lead – and make a national plan so we can repower Australia with clean energy from the wind and sun. It’s time for everyone, everywhere to demand our elected representatives do the right thing and listen to the people they represent.

This is not a matter of ‘we should do this’, or ‘we’d be wise to.’ It’s simpler. We must.

So let’s get on with it.

The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it. ―David Attenborough
