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.

Western Australia, one of the sunniest, windiest places on Earth, stands to gain so much from a swift transition to a solar and wind-powered energy system and, conversely, faces increasingly graver threats from climate change unless action is taken to reduce emissions. There is no excuse not to transition to a renewable energy society today. Make it happen. I’m tired of waiting and Australia is now the laughing stock of the world!

Hurry up please! Time is ticking away. We need to start using the climate solutions we already have before the human race sends itself into extinction. We expect our politicians to do better than they are. Lead us into the future we all know we need – renewables, carbon neutrality, climate positive jobs etc etc etc

The Morrison Liberal National Government long term inaction and has resulted in ecocide in Australia. It is a crime against living natural world and humans. The politics of this government has worked with industry and against humanity. There is a missing link in responsibility to protect these OUR LIVING WORLD and we can no longer assume the Morrison or any government has its citizens best interests at heart. The voters want a world they can live politicians from ALL SIDES OF POLITIC MUST URGENTLY take responsibility FOR CLIMATE ACTION NOW.

This government has been so pathetic about its protection of our environment, embarrassing us at UNSECO & G7.

No more contaminated water and unremediated pollution. Thank you.

Commit to real renewable energy solutions. Don’t feign surprise at the proposed downgrade of the status of the Great Barrier Reef – more serious action can be taken by the Australian Govt!
