To the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Minister for Energy and Resources Josh Frydenberg MP,
As a matter of urgency, lock in the finance for building Australia's first large solar thermal plant with storage in Port Augusta.2,358 signatures
Clean power on demand and new clean jobs is something the Port Augusta community has fighting for over the last five years. In the wake of the old coal stations closing, building solar thermal in Port Augusta has never been more urgent.
It's time to make solar thermal in Port Augusta happen. With the Liberal, Labor, Nick Xenophon and Greens parties all supporting solar thermal before the election and serious companies ready to build it together we can turn that support into funding for solar thermal in Port Augusta.
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.
James Dagher posted about Malcolm, keep your promise: no funding for Adani's dangerous coal mine. on Facebook 2016-07-22 10:48:22 +1000Sign the petition to make sure Malcolm Turnbull put's any applications for funding Adani's coal mine IN THE BIN!
Dear Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull,
During the election you promised that there would be no public funding for Adani’s mega coal projects, please make sure any of their applications for a loan from the Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund are put in the bin.4,136 signatures
Malcolm made a promise to you during the election campaign that there would be no public funding for Adani’s mega coal projects.
Now, he has broken that promise and is offering a $1billion handout to Adani to build their rail line and coal mine as part of the Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund (NAIF). It's also a pipe dream - Adani have said that they don't really need the NAIF money, they're just asking for it because it's there (what an insult to the Australian taxpayer)!
If Adani do get this $1billion funding, then it makes it more likely that domestic and international banks will back it in too. We can't let this happen, so we've got to show how unpopular this move is.
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.
What would you rather spend a billion taxpayer dollars on? Let Malcolm Turnbull know by taking a selfie with this poster.
