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.

Please fight this for our children and grandchild. This is antiquated thinking and absolutely ridiculous that Australian taxpayers should be asked to fund big business. Renewables are the way of the future. Please look ahead and not behind

We’re better than this. Favouritism and ideology will not solve our problems. We need transparency, consultation and the input of scientists and engineers to solve our energy and emissions challenges. Let’s be clever not mean.

Please speak up for the public interest and long term viability of Australia and the planet by focusing on the need to protect our clean energy funds. Please focus on what expert scientists recommend – we have to stop using fossil fuels and totally focus on renewables.

Climate vandalism must be stopped, we cannot afford the bills our children and their children will have to pay if the LNP is allowed to run their radical policies. How many refugees will be the outcome of run away climate change, assisted by short sighted donor compromised politicians.

Are you going to be like that fossil in America and deny that climate change is happening?

We have already seen the bushfires here in Australia and the devastation they caused and now it is happening in America.

We must not use coal or gas. We MUST use clean engery.
