BEYOND COAL AND GAS TO 100% CLEAN ENERGY

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.

Coal and gas are fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are the leading cause of climate change. In a climate emergency, all new fossil fuel projects are a crime against humanity. 

We have roughly 10 years to avoid a climate catastrophe. It’s not too late, we just need bold action.

‘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.’

The State Government is supporting new coal and gas projects across our state - including a massive new gas import terminal in pristine Westernport Bay, new gas drilling off our coastline, opening up the Otway basin to gas extraction and a project to make hydrogen out of burning coal.

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.

The people of Brunswick want to see an electricity sector that saves people money, closes polluting brown coal power stations and transitions Victoria's economy to clean sources of energy like wind, solar, and batteries.

BEYOND COAL AND GAS TO 100% CLEAN ENERGY

TAKE ACTION

We are in a climate emergency.

We must phase out coal by 2030 and replace it with clean, renewable energy while creating jobs and supporting local workers through the transition.
