Dear Prime Minister and all Federal Parliamentarians,
The so-called gas crisis that is currently affecting the east coast of Australia has been caused by the diversion of domestic gas to the three CSG export plants at Gladstone, Queensland.
It is the gas industry who has caused this problem by shipping our gas overseas, leading to price spikes for manufacturers here and putting Australian businesses at risk.
Australians are paying more for our own gas than the Japanese are now paying for our gas.
We’re calling on all Parliamentarians to support renewable energy and battery storage, and stop shipping our domestic gas offshore.
We’re asking you to reject plans for new gas fracking pipelines from Western Australia and the Northern Territory, and to reject any of our public money being spent on them.
Our iconic Aussie landscapes, like the Kimberley, south-west Western Australia and Arnhem Land, are far too precious to frack.
Don't try to undermine democracy and weaken state protections against unconventional gas. Choose renewables and storage. Lead us forwards, not backwards.
Will you sign on to this letter?
