Help stop the relentless and systematic destruction of our environment
For forty years Victorians have been working hard to protect and improve our environment. We’re proud of our clean air and water, our beautiful National Parks and the ecosystems and amazing destinations that set our state apart.
But after coming into office the Baillieu Government took a wrecking ball to our environment; scrapping action on climate change, slashing support for clean energy, propping up polluting coal, cutting forest protections and threatening the future of the Murray River.
Now, it’s the final straw. The state and federal energy ministers are spruiking our highly-polluting brown coal resources to international coal barons, to secure plans to give away billions of tonnes of brown coal in the Latrobe Valley. And they’re trying to greenwash coal with the promise of imaginary ‘clean coal’ technology that's nothing more than a pipedream. This government is chasing phantom technology and jobs in polluting coal while abandoning real and existing jobs in clean energy.
It’s appalling. And we have to do something about it. Now we have a new Premier and we need to show the government that Victorians are proud of our environment - and that we’re willing to fight for it.
Please, sign this urgent petition to Premier Napthine and senior government members to show support for a healthy environment and a cleaner, better future.
