The Morrison Government plans to weaken our brightest renewable funds – the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) – to let them splash cash into fossil fuels

Investors won’t back gas – neither should Australian taxpayers.

Independent and Centre Alliance representatives in our Parliament are powerful voices for public policy in the public interest. They can do a great job in holding the Government accountable. 

Their voices and their votes will be critical in the next three months as we work to keep our brightest renewable energy funds clean – and stop the Coalition giving public money to their mates in gas!

We call on Independent MPs Helen Haines, Zali Steggall, Andrew Wilkie and Rebecca Sharkie (Centre Alliance), and crossbench Senators Jacqui Lambie, Rex Patrick and Stirling Griff (Centre Alliance) to use their voices and votes and stand up for the Clean Energy Finance Corporation by:

  • Keep our clean energy agencies clean – don’t change their remit to support fossil fuels.
  • Maintain their independence – don’t give the Minister powers to override investment decisions of the independent board
  • Retain the requirement to deliver a return on investment to Australians – investors won’t back gas, and neither should taxpayers.

Let’s encourage Independents in the House of Representatives to use their voices to speak up for the public interest, as they have on so many important issues.

And let’s encourage Independents in the Senate to use their votes to protect our clean energy funds, as they have in the past.

We need start helping out this planet or else by the time Gen z is old the icebergs will be melted, fires will be everywhere, the water level will rise taking out most states on coastline and most of the worlds animals will be extinct.

Follow the science! Avoid fossil fuels and move to renewables.

Because it pollutes the atmosphere and increases global warming I believe the use of gas should be phased out.

I wish you luck, we need more voices of concern. The government is great at saying they follow “the science” but in today’s political climate it cannot be certain that all members understand real science or how to read a scientific journal.

Over 70% of voting Australians want meaningful
Climate Action NOW.

Wilfully ignoring this and ignoring good science amounts to betrail against our kids and grandchildren.
Science and independent economists tell us in no uncertain terms that fossil fuels are not a wise investment of taxpayer’s money.
The future is a clean and stable environment.

Please use your voices for the future of our planet and stop allowing banks to invest in fossil fuels. It’s quite frankly, archaic and given the numbers of Australians becoming more concerned than ever about the effects of climate change, as a democracy politicians need to listen.

The time to tackle climate change is NOW, not in the future. Please contemplate the world we are leaving for the next generation and play your part in creating a sustainable, liveable environment. It can be done! It must be done!
