We can create a clean, resilient and fair Australia.
COVID-19 has caused a crisis unlike anyone has ever seen before. It is important that we get the next part right because how we respond will shape Australia and the world for years to come.
Climate change isn’t going anywhere - in fact, it’s only going to get worse unless we act right now. And we mean RIGHT NOW. We know some of the climate news can be scary. But there is good news! We can tackle climate change and rebuild Australia’s economy at the same time. Even better? If we do this right, it’s going to make Australia cleaner, more resilient and fairer.
The best thing is - we already have the solutions! Did you know Green steel can secure future green jobs for coalminers? Or that an economic rebuild focussed on renewable energy could provide more than 76,000 jobs? Or that we can become an energy superpower and sell our renewable energy to the rest of the world?
So what are we waiting for? Good question! Now is the perfect time. We need to act now to ensure our voices are heard and that the government knows that we want them to invest in a clean, resilient and fair future for Australia.
The climate crisis is getting worse every single day and despite everything that 2020 has thrown at us we have not forgotten about the horrendous bushfires. If the bushfires taught us one thing it was that we need to make fossil fuels history! The Government has proposed pouring public money into big gas projects, which would be a disaster for our climate – gas is a fossil fuel, which isn’t going to get us anywhere towards a more resilient and cleaner future.
We have all the solutions, now is the time to adopt them. Make fossil fuels history and Unfudge our Future!
