Gas is a volatile, dangerous fuel from last century. It is mainly made up of methane, a greenhouse gas 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Gas extraction poisons our water and wrecks our land.

But the Morrison government is spending public money on new gas projects.

Safe, healthy communities depend on a healthy planet. Let’s get on with the climate solutions that are here, now, and ready to scale in Australia.

Australia is one of the sunniest, windiest places on earth — we have huge opportunities to power our lives with clean, renewable energy this decade and export our sunshine to the world.

We can’t wait any longer. Climate damage is here. The solutions we need are available and ready to renew our communities.

Call on our elected representatives to work together and do better.

They must act now to secure and create climate-positive jobs and do our part to cut pollution this decade — to keep people and wildlife safe from dangerous, climate-fuelled bushfires, droughts and storms.

Australia has the abundant clean energy, the tools and the talent to do the job. Let’s get on with it.

Sign this open letter to all Members and Senators in the Australian Parliament.

Open letter

To all Members and Senators in the Australian Parliament:

  • Power our communities and transport with clean energy. Replace coal and gas with renewable energy in the next decade.
  • Send our sunshine around the world with clean energy exports like green hydrogen, steel and aluminium.
  • Get coal and gas money out of politics and put people back in. Stop accepting dirty donations from coal and gas companies and ban big political donations to reduce their influence on decision-making.
  • Save our big backyard: protect and restore our forests, wetlands and mangroves for our climate and for the animals that call them home.

Lets stop messing around. We know its inevitable that we have to move away from fossil fuels, our hesitancy is harming the environment, and our longterm economic future.

The news tells us daily of catastrophic climate events around the world that we cannot ignore. We can start right now by investing in renewables, creating jobs and creating a future liveable world for our children and children’s children. Listen to the people, stop, look and listen to the earth now.

The cost of clean energy are cheaper than fossil fuels, what are we waiting for?

Considering the current strong evidence, studies and projected outcomes from the specialists around the globe, I would recommend to consider the following advice.

I’m sure some of these crises must be a lie to get people back up because surely the Australian government isn’t so stupid to destroy our tourist attractions because I’m sure it’s not what the people of Australia want at all

The global risk is that catastrophic weather events, as we are seeing now, will become so frequent that our civilization will not have the time and resources to recover between events. The potential for social, economic and political meltdowns are truly frightening.

There’s a new way ahead that embraces the Restoration Economy. These renewable solutions will create many jobs which will allow people to be paid to make things better…not worse! So much work to do and so many needing employment…and hope! Especially young people in regional areas. Solar installers, bush regenerators…important rewarding work. Lets do it!

It’s clear Australia has so many clean energy options and the Australian people want this, look at how many already invested in their own personal solar panels, solar or heat pump hot water systems and electric cars. We want to look after our beautiful country.

To simplify a complex problem down to a simple solution, please consider that production of more CO2 from fossil fuel (and from biofuel) or diverting such products from fracking (ethane) into plastic is like driving whilst under the influence of alcohol, in spite of firm advice not to, at 100kph. Not clever, and reasonably understood as criminal, by fact of the law or in terms of wanton neglect of good sense and best judgement.
