NT Greens Policies : 2020
Our plan to ban fracking
Shale gas FRACKING is a threat to the NT that risks global climate impacts and ignores federal responsibilities
In 2018, the Morrison Liberal Government withheld GST funding from the Northern Territory until the fracking moratorium was lifted. The Gunner Labor government in the NT gave in to this blackmail.
Now, in the name of Covid-19 economic recovery, fossil fuel lobbyists and Morrison government bullies are pressuring the NT government to remove regulatory protections for the environment and communities. Given its track record, there is a very real chance the NT government will give in to this pressure too.
The Greens want an immediate, total, permanent ban on fracking.
What you can do to support us — every little bit counts!
Timothy Paris, Greens for Solomon
Last month, Bill Shorten announced $1.5 billion from the North Australia Infrastructure Fund for gas pipelines to open up the Beetaloo Basin. $1.5 billion is a lot of money and that much investment would kickstart any industry. What if, instead of propping up the mining industry we were to invest that $1.5 billion into solar energy infrastructure and create a renewable energy powerhouse; exporting energy to Australia and the world.
