  • Canterbury Bankstown Council - kick the gas habit / stop NT fracking

    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.

    Stop the Narrabri gas project

    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.

    Your donation helps local communities under threat to choose renewables not gas: 

    -$50 will let farmers and communities speak out in the media and get the facts to voters;

    -$75 will go towards supporting renewable energy projects in affected regions that have community support;

    -$100 will contribute to scientific & economic reports for media and submissions.

    Stop Origin Fracking the NT

    Origin Energy are lining up to frack the Northern Territory this year, and in the firing line are some magical places, including recharge zones of Mataranka Hot Springs.

    Traditional Owners have told us that Origin Energy has ignored their concerns about fracking and not properly laid out the risks involved.

    Fracking the NT would be a disaster for the landscape, communities and waterways. Plus it would unleash massive emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas, and fuel global warming.

    We need to build a powerful movement of people willing to spread the word and take on Origin at every level, from their head offices to their board rooms.

  • Protect Sydney's Drinking Water Catchment

    Our drinking water, our rivers and even our World Heritage areas are threatened by longwall coal mining in the greater Sydney region.

    Right now, South32, Wollongong Coal and Hume Coal are all pushing ahead with proposals for new coal mining inside Greater Sydney’s water catchment.

    On top of that, Peabody Coal have applied to explore for more coal near Woronora Reservoir.

    It’s time that Premier Berejiklian declared Sydney's drinking water catchment a no-go zone for coal mining.

  • signed Mine Rehab Petition 2016-08-09 17:33:15 +1000

    Make Coal Giants Pay for Mine Clean-Up

    Our new report – Abandoned Mines in Queensland: Toxic Time-bomb or Employment Opportunity? – calls for big mining companies to cover the cost of rehabilitating the State’s abandoned mines and estimates that this would generate 6000 jobs in regional Queensland!

    There are too many large abandoned mines, and the full cost of cleaning them up is too large and should not fall on taxpayers. If mines are levied to pay for the clean up, they can also create jobs in the process.

    Why should we miss out on hundreds of schools and hospitals because we’re footing the bill for the mess left behind by irresponsible mining companies?

    We call on the NSW and Queensland Premiers to strengthen weak mining laws and force companies to honour their obligations to rehabilitate their mines. The following needs to be done:

    1. Increase the required deposit to cover rehabilitation costs
    2. Require all future mines to backfill their mining pits and protect water resources
    3. Establish an independent authority to monitor and enforce mine rehabilitation
    4. Penalise companies who breach rehabilitation requirements.


    Together we can ensure that the mining industry is held to account and that our land and water resources are protected against abandoned mines.
