In the leadup to this May's federal budget, let's urge Treasurer Jim Chalmers to stop wasting our public money on climate-heating fossil fuels.

Australia's state and federal governments spend an eye-watering $22,217 a minute on subsidies for coal, gas and oil.

There are so many things we can choose to spend our money on – like climate solutions, protecting and restoring nature, health, education, cost of living relief, First Nations justice and more.

Write your email to the Treasurer now.

What to include in your email

Write to Treasurer Jim Chalmers and ask him to:

  • Stop handing our public money to the climate-heating coal and gas industries.
  • Invest in a renewable-powered export industry to slash pollution and future-proof the economy
  • Act now so that Australian communities do not miss out on new, incredible climate-positive jobs.

Together, let’s show the Treasurer all the ways our public money can be better spent!
