  • Federal Parliament votes on climate emergency

    15 October 2019

    Following a wave of climate action, a Federal climate emergency motion was tabled and voted on by the Greens on Tuesday 15th October. It was narrowly defeated, blocked by the coal-loving Coalition. That it is even being debated at the national level shows how far we’ve come. The defeat is not the end. Just three Liberal MPs need to cross the floor to get the climate emergency legislation voted through. We will keep pushing.

    New South Wales was once a world leader on climate action, but a new Climate Council report shows it is now far behind, spewing more greenhouse gas pollution into the atmosphere than any other state or territory. The Climate Council report – Ageing and Unprepared: Energy in New South Wales – examines the state’s ongoing dependence on coal and gas power stations and its tardy transition to renewable energy.

  • Climate action in NSW: here's the plan.

    29 January 2019

    NSW is lagging behind all the other states and territories in the transition to clean energy. NSW is a drought declared state, with catastrophic bushfires and extreme heat waves across the state. Regional towns are on the brink of running out of water, millions of fish are dying in the Murray Darling Basin and heatwaves are threatening lives. It's time for action, and we have a plan.
