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.

Our state & federal governments have demonstrated with the COVID crisis they can act quickly & decisively when it suits them. They now need to act with the same urgency to resolve the climate crisis, there is absolutely no excuse for them dragging their feet on the transition to clean energy.

Fracking is destructive
Environmentally dangerous
Public money poorly spent
There are plenty of other sources for clean energy

A gas-powered future is not the future Australians want, need or deserve. The country needs leadership to keep it relevant in the 21st Century. Good leadership invests public money in technologies that adds prosperity both today and in the future. Renewables and their supporting technologies are the future for Australia and the Morrison government needs to move on from its Victorian-era way of thinking and embrace that future

How is Australia still not the 1st country to do everything with renewables when we have so much sunlight and wind etc to utilise.
I hope the Government can understand how to get the balance right and fix our Australia.

It is irresponsible of the government to use the public’s money to facilitate gas extraction when there are abundant clean energy options available to us in Australia
