Climate Change

Climate change is the biggest threat to our environment, and to all people.

Our  governments are abandoning their responsibility to reduce Australia’s emissions to avoid dangerous climate change. Worse, the Abbott government is accelerating climate change by stripping back our emissions and renewable energy laws while  fast tracking coal and CSG.

We are working to

  • Reduce greenhouse emissions by stopping the expansion of fossil fuel extraction and power generation.
  • Encourage accountable corporate behavior in emission reduction by making sure pollution costs
  • Support the expansion of renewable energy in Australia.
  • Explore legal options to fill the vacuum on emission reduction laws in Australia
