Labor: No More Coal and Gas!

In the midst of a terrifying summer, storms are raging, the country is flooding and our communities are sweltering.

From First Nations communities seeing their Country destroyed by coal and gas, to Pacific nations suffering super storms and rising seas, and communities bracing for more devastating extreme weather - a resounding call is coming for our Governments to act on the climate crisis.

But, by giving new approvals to coal and gas corporations, the Labor Government is failing the number one test of climate leadership and pouring more fuel on the fire.

Every fraction of a degree of warming we prevent matters. The coal we keep in the ground today can protect lives, livelihoods, and nature for generations to come.

Will you sign the petition calling on the Albanese Labor Government to immediately ban all new coal, oil and gas projects?

Dear Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Minister Chris Bowen and Minister Tanya Plibersek,

The world’s scientists and the International Energy Agency have been unequivocal - to have any chance of preserving a safe climate, there must be an immediate stop to all new coal and gas projects. But Australia has more proposed coal mines and expansions than anywhere else in the world. If these coal projects go ahead, they will blow the world’s chance at keeping warming to 1.5 degrees, and erase the Australian Government’s promised climate gains many times over. Every new coal project that is allowed to proceed destroys cultural heritage and our precious natural environment and will result in our communities battling worse floods, bushfires and heat waves.

Every fraction of a degree of warming we prevent matters. The coal we keep in the ground today will protect lives, livelihoods, and nature for generations to come. We call on your government to protect Australian communities by doing what the science demands and immediately ban all new coal, oil and gas projects.

Yours sincerely,
