Take the 90 day challenge to protect our climate!

Instead of getting on with phasing out polluting fuels and harvesting clean energy from sun, wind and waves – the Turnbull Government is pandering to the coal and gas lobby and actively blocking the transition.

They want to hand over a billion dollars of public money for Adani’s giant coal mine, put polluting coal and gas in our clean energy target and keep NSW’s oldest, dirtiest power station, Liddell, open past its used by date.

They’ve even given AGL CEO, Andy Vesey, an ultimatum – keep the dirty Liddell plant open or come up with an alternative energy plan in 90 days – something PM Turnbull and Abbott haven’t done in the last four years!

PM Turnbull has given Andy a 90 day challenge so we’ve created our own 90 day challenge. For 90 days, we’ll ramp up the pressure on Andy to make sure he shuts Liddell. And we’ll demand Bill Shorten stands strong on clean energy and doesn’t let PM Turnbull take us backwards.

Will you take the 90 day challenge so we can stop damage to our climate and repower Australia with sun, wind and waves? If our business and political leaders stand strong on clean energy, the Turnbull Government will have no choice but to fall into line.

There are 3 things you can do:

Together, let’s stop damage to our climate and repower Australia with sun, wind and waves!

We love a sun-powered country

We can’t keep powering our lives with polluting fuels.

By digging up and burning coal and gas, big polluting energy companies are damaging our climate and our lungs. They are polluting the air we breathe and the water we drink. They are overwhelming our planet’s physical systems, destroying our reefs and harming our communities.

It's time to move on from dirty and dangerous fuels.

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’ll create lots of good jobs in new industries with a big future.

In fact, it already is.

Rooftop by rooftop, communities across our country have taken the lead. Today, one in five households are capturing sun on their rooftops. Some 23 million solar panels are harvesting sunshine, right across our big brown land. That’s a panel for every single person in the country.

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
