To stop climate damage in Australia, we need to rapidly shift to clean energy from the sun and wind.
Renewables just make sense. They’re affordable and good for our communities. With clean energy, we can power our lives without harming our climate, coral reefs, air and water.
In 2017, the world added more new solar power than coal, gas and nuclear combined. In Australia, we have 1.8 million solar rooftops. Tasmania already runs with 93% renewable energy. South Australia’s powered by 50% renewables – plus the world’s biggest battery dispatches clean energy to the grid in milliseconds.
Modelling shows we have the technology to switch from coal and gas to 100% renewable electricity by 2030 – that’s just 12 years away!
But right now, our federal government is listening to the big coal lobby instead of the people, and slowing the transition to renewables.
Without federal government leadership, Australia will struggle to quickly stop climate damage and transition from burning coal and gas to clean, renewable energy. That’s why we’re:
So let's get on with it! Sign the petition calling on our elected representatives to source all our energy from the sun, wind and water.
100% clean energy – let’s get on with it! @ScottMorrisonMP @billshortenmp
