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.

I do NOT support a gas led recovery investment.

I choose sustainable renewable energy sources.

Please stand up for the Clean Energy Finance Corporation – and block fossil fuels at every available opportunity. A healthy economy needs a healthy climate. We rely on you to make that happen.

No taxpayers money spend on gas projects for big business – Renewables are the only way forward!

We need a future not gas, it’s literally become that important. Gas is NOT the way for renewable energy and addressing the methods of animal agriculture are

Please keep our clean energy agencies clean and also maintain their independence by not giving the minister powers to override investment decisions of the independent board.

Continuing to subsidize fossil fuels over renwables is economically irresponsible and short sighted. Fossil fuels can easily look after its own industry without government help. It’s time the LNP government realised it is backing the wrong horse unless it wants to confirm to voters that it is corruptly siphoning funds to the fossil fuel moguls against good economic policy.
