No New Gas

No New Gas

As a community, we’re facing a dual crisis of COVID-19 and the climate emergency. Both are threatening our way of life.

The climate emergency has not gone away. Scientists are telling us that we are in the critical decade. We have to halve pollution by 2030 and get to zero emissions as fast as possible or we will face catastrophic consequences of irreversible global heating.

As a community, we’re facing a dual crisis of COVID-19 and the climate emergency. Both are threatening our way of life.

The climate emergency has not gone away. Scientists are telling us that we are in the critical decade. We have to halve pollution by 2030 and get to zero emissions as fast as possible or we will face catastrophic consequences of irreversible global heating.

The mining, burning and exporting of coal, oil and gas are the biggest causes of the climate crisis. Gas is a fossil fuel and a major cause of the climate crisis. It is as dirty as coal.

Scott Morrison’s dodgy plan to allow public money meant for renewable energy to instead fund dirty gas needs the support of the Senate crossbench, which is where we all come in. Recent months have shown us that with sustained community pressure, we can get the crossbench on board to block the government’s agenda. 

Can you send an email today to the Senate crossbench calling on them to block public money meant for renewable energy going to polluting gas?

Both the Liberal and Labor parties have accepted millions of dollars in donations from gas companies. These donations are having major influence on their decisions to support new gas projects which will trash the environment, threaten our water and air and lock us in for even more dangerous global heating. 

Now is the time for bold government investment in publicly owned renewable technology not dirty gas projects. The right investment now will drive our economy into the future and create hundreds of thousands of jobs.
