  • 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 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.

    Stand with Wendy: Stop the Hunter coal rush

    Hunter Valley farmer Wendy Bowman has been awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for her extraordinary success in protecting her farm from being open cut for coal mining.

    Will you help us amplify Wendy's win and shine a spotlight on the damage coal mining is doing to the Hunter Valley?

    Wendy was forced to leave her land once due to a coal mine, but when they tried a second time on her next farm she stood her ground.

    She has beaten a coal mining company in court, and now we need to change the law so no more Australian farmers are forced to move for coal mining.

    Write a message to Australian politicians telling them to stop letting coal companies buy-up huge areas of farmland. In the Singleton Shire where Wendy farms, coal companies own 15% of all freehold land and 27% of all mapped strategic agricultural land.

    When the government grants approval for a mine, they let them pollute the landscape with noise and air far beyond their own boundaries, forcing local people to sell up and leave. Wendy Bowman has stood her ground - support her courage today and help other Hunter farmers under threat.

    Petition to save the heritage Wallaby Scrub Road in the Hunter Valley from Open Cut Mining

    330 signatures

    We the undersigned demand the Premier of NSW Mike Baird and his Roads Minister Duncan Gay refuse to close Bulga's Wallaby Scrub Road to allow Warkworth Mining Limited (Rio Tinto) to destroy our convict built heritage road for open cut coal mining.

    The owner of the road, Singleton Council, has reaffirmed its objection to the closure of Wallaby Scrub Road by voting against the closure at their recent meeting. Council is supporting the Bulga community, and we call on the Baird Government to do the same.

    Baird's State Government has ignored the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court and abandoned the people of Bulga and Milbrodale in the Hunter Valley. The Commonwealth Government has worked hand in glove with the NSW Government to allow the destruction of world unique woodlands and aboriginal culture and history.

    Wallaby Scrub Road is a heritage road built by the convicts and must be preserved as part of our European heritage. We must not allow a profit driven international mining company to destroy our heritage against wishes of the community and to mine a product which is destroying our planet.

    Our common home

    Bishops, wine-makers, livestock producers and conservationists have penned a joint letter to NSW Premier Mike Baird calling on him to protect our common home from a coal mining industry that is out of control.  You can read the full text of the joint letter here

    Our common home, our farmland, rivers, villages and bushland are being torn up or ruined for coal mining. How long are coal affected communities expected to wait for the Government to do something to fix up coal mining? 

    We've put an ad in Mike Baird's local paper, the Manly Daily, and want all of you to give him a call and add your voice to the push to reform coal mining and save our communities, landscapes and rural industries. Can you call him?
