  • Over to you, Gladys

    18 February 2019

    You demanded climate action and today, NSW Labor listened. If elected, they’ve pledged to make huge investments in renewable energy. This is great news in the race to switch from climate-wrecking coal to clean energy, and it shows that climate action is well and truly on the agenda this NSW election. With polling day drawing closer, we need to ramp up the pressure on Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s coal-loving Liberals. They must match Labor and commit to action for our climate now.

    Buskers and baristas. Grand final fever and the Great Ocean Road. Idiosyncratic facial hair and indecisive weather. Victoria has it all! But with the state set to go to the polls next week, and the future of clean energy and climate action at stake, what do the voters of Victoria really want?

  • Liberals’ energy plan for Victoria: a backwards step
