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.

Protecting the earth is just as important as the collaborative efforts that have been shown in response to the pandemic. Households, communities, state, federal and international governments have joined with specialized businesses to overcome Covid-19. Similarly we all need to review our lifestyles, income streams and investment policies to enhance environmentally friendly actions. Urgent transitioning away from polluting coal, oil and gas to renewable energies must be prioritized by Australia’s national government in order to show our global citizenship and commitment to a better world.

The Federal government needs to look our citizens by addressing Climate change. Climate change is by far a bigger threat to all of us than COVID-19.

I don’t want to pay tax that leads to destroying the planet ✌️

Action is needed NOW. No time to waste. The Government should represent the view of the community, not a small number of fossil fuel giants and climate change deniers.
