Coal and gas is fuelling the climate crisis, and now Labor is making global heating worse by opening new coal and gas mines.
We must join together to fight back against the power of coal and gas corporations.
Labor has given the go ahead to five new coal projects in under twelve months: including the Gregory Crinum Coal Mine in the Bowen Basin, approved to run until 2073, the Isaac River Coal Mine, the Star Coal Mine and the Ensham Coal Mine.
But the Greens have just secured another hit on new oil and gas projects fuelling the climate crisis, with the Environment Minister being given the power to stop new gas mines if they’ll threaten our precious water supplies, our climate and our future.
As a result of Greens’ pressure, Tanya Plibersek will now be personally responsible for deciding if climate destroying fracking and gas projects like the Beetaloo, the Perth Basin and Burrup Hub go ahead. She can stop them going ahead. It’s time to make it clear to Labor: no more gas in a climate crisis.
Labor is taking too many big donations from coal and gas corporations, and giving them special treatment. Big corporations come first and the environment and climate comes second. 🙄
The only way to tackle the climate crisis is to stop approving more coal and gas.
It’s now all up to the Minister. They can stop new gas projects - but we’ll need to make them do it.
