The race to the top is on!

This morning the Labor Party announced its ‘Climate Change Action Plan’ in a significant step forward that puts the pressure on Malcolm Turnbull to tell us what he will do to transition Australia to 100% renewable power. Keep reading for a rundown of some of the key points and what they mean but first, here’s what you can do:

Campaigns

Meet Your Member

It’s vital that we remind newly elected politicians of the promises they made during the election campaign, to fund Australia’s first ever solar thermal plant and no public money to prop up Adani’s Carmichael project.

Protect Country

Sign the petition to support the growing movement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people standing up to protect our land, culture and communities from fossil fuel extraction and global warming.

Galilee Petition

Sign the petition calling on Malcolm to put Adani's applications for the dangerous Carmichael coal projects in the bin so the coal in the Galilee Basin stays underground where it belongs.

Pt Augusta Petition

Sign the petition to Prime Minister Turnbull and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg asking them to come through on their promise to the Port Augusta community and sign the dotted line for funding for solar thermal in Port Augusta.
