Assisting the successful community campaign to close the Anglesea power station

We contributed to the community campaign, led by Surf Coast Air Action (SCAA), against the Anglesea brown coal power station, including assessing replacement jobs in mine rehabilitation and quantifying the ‘social costs’ of coal.

We also released a report by Harvard researchers calculating the health costs of the air pollution at $170 million every year. Across Victoria, the air and carbon pollution costs of burning coal exceed $3.5 billion.
