Burning coal is the single biggest cause of climate change. In Australia, our most significant contribution to global warming is the coal we export – 80% of our coal is exported and burnt overseas. In fact, we are the world’s largest exporter of coal.
We cannot deal with climate change without dealing with the mining, burning and exporting of coal. The Labor and Liberal parties have no plan to end coal because they have been bought by big fossil fuel corporations that give them millions in donations.
The Greens are the only party demanding strong action on climate change. We have a plan to transition our energy system from one of the oldest and dirtiest in the world to one of the cleanest, reducing pollution and creating thousands of jobs in the process.
We are on the verge of a climate change catastrophe, with experts warning we only have twelve years to quit coal. The time to act is now. Join our campaign to end coal by making this election a referendum on climate change.
