Tamarama, do you think the future of NSW rests with more coal and gas mining, or with renewable energy?
We'd like to know what you think, which is why we're going to be knocking on your door on Sunday 5 August.
Did you know eleven new and expanding coal mines in NSW will produce more coal, use more water and occupy more land than Adani’s mega-mine in Queensland?
Did you know there’s a new 850 well coal seam gasfield proposed in the Pilliga forest and surrounding farmland near Narrabri?
These mining projects are proposed in some of our state’s most precious places, in the drinking water catchments of Sydney and on the rich horse-breeding and wine-growing regions of the Hunter Valley, and in our foodbowl on the Liverpool Plains.
It sounds grim, but the good news is, there’s something we can do about it.
There’s a NSW state election coming up in March 2019 and that means politicians competing for Coogee electorate's vote are listening a little more closely to what people like you are saying.
That’s why we're door knocking Tamarama, so we can tally the results and communicate them to local politicians.
If we want a future with clean energy, productive farms, clean water and thriving communities we’ve got to make this coming NSW state election a turning point.
So why not join our community survey at 2pm, on Sunday 5 August?
We'll meet at Tamarama Beach picnic area at 1pm for lunch. There'll be briefing at 1.30pm, and then we'll door knock from 2pm-4pm.
