Julie Muir signed Canterbury Bankstown Council - kick the gas habit / stop NT fracking 2020-04-25 20:50:17 +1000
As Canterbury Bankstown locals, we are asking Council to take action to protect our climate and help lower energy bills.
Our council can do this by opposing Origin’s plan to frack for oil and gas in the Northern Territory and by assisting local residents to access savings from switching appliances from gas to electricity.
Canterbury Bankstown Council is a customer of Origin Energy. Origin Energy plans to drill and frack for oil and gas across the NT. New Australia Institute analysis has shown that Northern Territory fracking could be worse for greenhouse emissions than all Australian coal power stations combined.
Canterbury Bankstown Council “recognises the need to take urgent action to reduce emissions”. Council passed a ‘Climate Emergency’ motion in August last year which called for the Premier to “step up” and “act with urgency to address the crisis”. Now it’s time for Canterbury Bankstown Council to step up.
In addition to opposing Origin Energy’s plans to frack the NT, Council needs to assist residents to disconnect from the gas network and access efficient, cheaper and safe technologies like induction cooktops and heat pumps for hot water and home heating and cooling (reverse cycle air conditioners).
Canterbury Bankstown - by population - is the largest Council in NSW, with more than 361,000 residents. What our Council does makes a difference.49 signatures

Help us combat Morrison’s dangerous push to bribe state governments to unleash fracking and CSG across the country.
Our communities are calling for renewable energy with storage, not polluting gas. Gas is not a transition fuel, it’s a one way street to more greenhouse emissions.

Many regions of the country are now facing one of the worst droughts on record.
Due to climate change we face more variable rainfall and more frequent, severe fires. Our agricultural productivity is under increasing pressure.
But coal and gas mines are still targeting many of our best food growing areas and precious water supplies.1,464 signatures
