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 prevent Morrison and his fossil-loving mining mates from adding to the climate change problems we face. Gas is too dangerous, both extracting it and in its use. Please join together and stop this damaging perversion of our future.

Independents in the Senate, please stand strong on stopping public subsidies for climate-wrecking energy schemes by the government!

To use renewable funding to persist with fossil fuels is execrable. To tie us to gas which will have no long-term future in a viable planet’s energy mix is short-sighted. To condemn our kids to a terrible future on a scorched planet is criminal. Why would you do this unless you were in the pocket of the major fossil fool companies ?

Do not use tax-payer money to prop up a dangerous and dying industry! It’s time for clean energy, not coal or gas.
