Victoria’s coal-burning power stations are the worst in the country for toxic mercury pollution.
Call on the Andrews government to stop letting coal power stations off the hook on community health and safety!
Coal-burning power stations have been identified as some of Australia’s worst toxic polluters. They spew out more than a quarter of the country’s dangerous fine particle pollution and almost half of all reported emissions of sulphur dioxide.
Victorian coal power stations are among the biggest emitters of mercury in the country – with Yallourn belching out four times the average of power stations in other states.
The licences of Victoria’s coal power stations are being reviewed right now.
Can you write to Environment and Energy Minister D’Ambrosio and demand she use the licence review to force coal-burning power stations to clean up their act?
