Abbott Wants to Rip Up Our Clean Energy Laws

Senators,

Scientists, economists and experts in Australia and around the world support urgently and dramatically reducing our emissions to avoid the worst impacts of global warming.

In 2010 the Greens and Labor introduced laws to fund clean energy and cut pollution. These laws are working - we have reduced pollution from electricity by over 6%. This important progress is under threat by the Coalition’s ‘carbon tax repeal bills’.

I ask you to vote against any attempt to repeal or water down the Clean Energy Act, the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, the Renewable Energy Target and other laws that are moving Australia towards 100% clean energy – and away from polluting coal and gas.

I want you to follow the recommendations of the scientists and be a champion for clean energy, the price on pollution, and leaving coal and gas in the ground.
