    Coal is the mistake of last century. Now it’s time for renewable energy.

    Adani is a convicted crook and lier. He will destroy our water resources, potential farming lands and lead to the total destruction of the Great Barrier Reef.This Adani mine and the others to follow must be stopped.

    New jobs must go with renewable and non damaging industries

    Fax Bill Shorten to Stop Adani!

    In the lead-up to a Federal election, we're annoying the heck out of our politicians until they commit to stopping Adani and new coal mines.

    You know what's as outdated as coal? Fax machines! 

    Add your message and we'll fax it - with hundreds of others - to Bill Shorten's office. Heaps annoying, and a surefire way to get our point across! 

    Your message can be as short or long as you like. Here are a couple of examples:

    "Dear Mr Shorten, I wanted to express my concern over the Adani Carmichael mine project. In 2018, we cannot afford to open any new coal mines if we want to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Coal power is even more outdated than using a fax machine - and it's time to supercharge renewable energy. Will your party commit to a position against new coal mines?"

    "Dear Mr Shorten, as a young person thinking about my future, I am writing to express my strong opposition to the Adani coal mine - and any new coal mines in the Galilee Basin, which would wreck our chances of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees for a safe climate future. Like fax machines, coal is outdated technology and we don't need it when people right across the world are switching to renewables. I hope your party will commit to a position of no new coal."

    Support a national plan for coal closure and just transition for communities like the Latrobe Valley

    100% renewables where no one gets left behind

    Dear Minister Frydenberg, 

    Support a national plan for coal closure and just transition for communities like the Latrobe Valley.

    1,787 signatures

    Just weeks ago, it was announced that Australia’s oldest and dirtiest power station, Hazelwood, will close by April 2017. This is great news for our climate and the health of the community of the Latrobe Valley. However closure also means job losses and uncertainty for a community that has relied on brown coal for decades.

    Sign this petition calling on Australia’s energy and resources ministers to commit to 100% renewables by 2030, and to develop a plan to ensure coal communities don’t get left behind during the transition.

    Right now our government is failing to plan for the future of our electricity system. We all know that coal is well and truly on its way out and renewables are the way of the future. The closure of Hazelwood makes this very clear.

    The Turnbull Government is failing to show ambitious leadership and plan for the clean energy future Australians deserve. A national plan to quickly and fairly close our old coal fired power stations is needed urgently, so that communities like the Latrobe Valley aren’t left in the lurch.

    Sign the petition now calling on Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg to support a national plan for closing coal and a fair transition for communities like the Latrobe Valley.

    Sign the petition: Prime Minister stop BP drilling for oil in our Bight

    Prime Minister stop oil giants drilling for oil in the Bight

    Prime Minister stop oil giants drilling for oil in the Bight

    Just months before BP was set to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight they pulled the pin on the risky project. This was testament to the incredible defenders who fought for years to stop BP and protect the unique southern coastline.

    But the fight is not over, there are 4 other companies waiting to drill for oil in the Bight. We urgently need a ban on all oil drilling in the Bight.  

    Please sign this petition today and we'll deliver your voice to Parliament House with thousands of others, together we'll be impossible to ignore.


    Dear Prime Minister,

    We're extremely concerned that your government may allow oil companies to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight.

    The Great Australian Bight is a pristine marine environment that supports 36 species of whales and dolphins. It sustains one of the world’s most important nurseries for the endangered southern right whale, as well as important industries like fishing and tourism. These would all be put at unacceptable risk by oil exploration.

    The waters of the Great Australian Bight are deep, rough and remote. Drilling for oil here is risky and irresponsible.

    Independent oil spill modelling has shown almost all of Australia’s southern coast could be at risk from an oil spill in the Bight.

    Searching for new oil reserves in the Bight runs directly counter to the urgent need to stop burning oil, coal and gas to prevent catastrophic climate change. It is inconsistent with the Paris Climate Agreement goals your government signed to protect our climate.

    The Great Australian Bight is the wrong place to drill for oil. And this is the wrong time in history to allow oil companies to look for more of it.

    Prime Minister, I call on you to ban oil and gas development in the Great Australian Bight now and into the future.
