Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor, says he thinks Australia should have a "gas-fired recovery" - but his plan is terrible for climate justice
The Minister told the Age and SMH that gas development provides an "opportunity for strategic economic stimulus in Australia to aid the recovery."
This means more fracking against First Nations Peoples' will, more gas mining on farms, more gas mining off our coastline. It means more greenhouse gas emissions. It means putting off the transition we need to shift our economy to renewable energy. Investing in new fossil fuel development simply locks us in to oil and gas use when the climate science clearly shows us that we need to transition away from these energy sources urgently.
Add your voice to the call for a climate justice recovery! Now is the time to revolutionise our economy and rid ourselves of fossil fuel dependence.
I say NO to Angus Taylor's climate-wrecking gas plan to keep Australia addicted to fossil fuels!
Australia already produces more than its fair share of greenhouse gases.
At the domestic level, we have the ability to shift to a mix of renewables, energy efficiency and energy storage - which means local jobs, cheaper energy bills, and an opportunity for local manufacturing.
We need to use this opportunity to drive renewable energy jobs, and listen to front line communities.
