Action for week starting 21.9.20 – A renewables-led recovery NOT a gas-led one

Tell the federal government we want a renewables-led recovery not a gas-led one!

A tweet from Mike Cannon-Brookes says it all –

AEMO (Australia Energy Market Operator): More  gas generation not needed.

CSIRO: Gas = expensive electricity.

Economists: Gas extraction creates very few jobs.

Scientists: Gas is incompatible with our Paris goals.

Investors: Gas has bad returns.  No $s.

Politicians: Ignore experts.  MORE GAS!

Lock the Gate has started a petition requesting the federal coalition government take immediate action to:

  • withdraw subsidies to fossil fuels, and transition these subsidies to renewable energy sources
  • urgently create a national renewable energy roadmap to implement this transition
  • commit the National Energy Market to sourcing 100% of its energy from renewables within the next decade.

Tell the federal government we want a renewables-led recovery not a gas-led one!

Sign the petition here.
