We, the petitioners therefore request that the Federal Government take immediate action to:
Get off the gas -
We know that we need renewables NOT gas for a sustainable, healthy future for our communities, our environment AND our economy.
We can't let our government keep propping up this destructive industry. It’s time we invested our money wisely on safe and sustainable industries, and towards a clean energy future.
Tell the federal government that we want a renewables-led recovery!
Withdraw subsidies to fossil fuels, particularly gas and coal extraction, and transition these to renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
Transition today -
Urgently create a National Renewable Energy Roadmap stepping through a rapid transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy.
Set the standard -
Commit to the National Energy Market sourcing 100% of its energy from renewables within the next decade.
Help, don’t hinder states and territories -
Prioritise infrastructure spending for states and territories to assist them to source 100% of their energy from renewable sources within the coming decade.
Leaner demand, cleaner supply -
Create a stimulus package to fund retrofit for renewables and energy efficiency in homes and small businesses across Australia using zero interest loans.
