The Morrison Government could be protecting our climate, land and water, and creating thousands of new jobs by growing Australia’s renewable energy sector and backing First Nations solutions to protect Country.
Instead, they are lining the pockets of multinational gas companies, which are fuelling the climate crisis, devastating our land and water, wrecking our health and creating very few jobs.
Burning and mining coal and gas are the biggest contributors to the climate crisis. Gas is a dirty fossil fuel primarily made up of methane, one of the main drivers of dangerous climate change.
We have a chance to create a sustainable recovery from Covid-19, but instead the Morrison Government is handing out billions of dollars of public money in subsidies and funding to dirty climate-wrecking gas projects.
There’s still time to stop the Government’s plans to mine more dirty gas. But we need to show them that people everywhere want them to #FundOurFutureNotGas.
Join us on May 21, to call on the Morrison Government to invest in renewable energy and First Nations solutions that care for country, not dirty gas projects.
