Coal and gas are the leading causes of the climate crisis.
Labor is making global heating worse by opening new coal mines.
For years the Labor and Liberal parties have backed in more coal and more gas, because they take millions in donations from coal and gas billionaires and big corporations.
With another El Nino summer upon us, the heatwaves have started and the bushfire season is already threatening towns and communities.
The science is clear: every tonne of coal and gas burnt increases the intensity and speed of changes to our climate, which means more floods, more intense droughts and heatwaves, and more frequent bushfires.
The Greens are calling on the Labor government to:
- Stop new coal, oil and gas projects
- Require, by law, that all new mines or big developments are assessed for their climate impact before being given environmental approval
- Support coal and gas communities through the transition
The Labor government need to listen to the scientists, to communities who have suffered from the bushfires and floods, and to our Pacific neighbours, all of whom are calling for greater climate action.
Drastically cutting emissions is possible with the technology we have today, so let’s get it done.
Join us in calling on the government to end coal and gas now and create a safe climate future for all of us.
