Protect Victoria: No Coal Exports
Right now, there are plans to develop a major new brown coal export industry from Victoria.
If these plans go ahead, up to 33 billion tonnes of brown coal could be handed over to coal companies to be dug up, hauled across the state, and shipped to China and India for burning.
The devastating impact would stretch from fertile farmland in Gippsland where the coal is buried, to protected marine zones beside Wilsons Promontory or Philip Island where it would be shipped from major new ports.
And the massive pollution from burning all that coal would tear away our hopes of stopping runaway climate change.
We must act to protect Victoria from this disaster before it’s too late.
Please, sign this petition now and help us protect Victoria’s future. Say no to brown coal exports.
