BEYOND COAL AND GAS TO 100% CLEAN ENERGY


This is the critical decade for climate action. Coal and gas are the leading causes of the climate crisis.

But Labor and the Liberals are pouring fuel on the fire by backing more coal and gas. Labor is even fast-tracking gas drilling near the 12 Apostles, and they don't have a plan to get out of coal.

In parliament I've been calling on the Victorian government to replace coal and gas with 100% renewable energy by 2030, while protecting workers and creating jobs.

Brunswick suffers from an acute urban heat island effect, made worse by our warming climate. The people of Brunswick have been loud and clear – they want to see bold action that addresses our climate emergency and set's up Victoria to be a renewable energy powerhouse. 

Despite understanding the reality of the climate crisis, here in Victoria, Premier Andrews extended the coal burning licences of the state’s power stations to 2048, and has lifted the ban on gas extraction.

A good government would transition to 100% clean energy as soon as possible and have ambitious emission reduction targets. 

I will continue to call for ambitious climate action, including a plan to phase out coal by 2030 and oppose all new gas extraction. A rapid transition to renewable energy presents huge opportunities. A good government would have the vision to seize them.

Efficient electric homes are cheap to run, comfy and good for the climate

So much of Victoria’s housing is not fit for our climate. Our homes often feel like glorified tents: freezing in winter and boiling in summer, forcing us to waste a lot of money and energy on heating and cooling.

Fixing our homes and making them all-electric by removing gas will save us money and make a big dent in Victoria’s emissions.

It's time to get Victoria off fossil fuels.

Breathing new life into Melbourne Cemetery

Thousands of people pass by or through Melbourne General Cemetery every day, but we aren’t treating it as a precious inner-city open space. Much of it is very dry and degraded, with minimal vegetation, and many old graves are in disrepair. It could be much better.

The government should go further and faster on COVID
