We’ve got less than 48 hours to convince the Labor Party to walk away from this destructive deal. That’s why we need as many people as possible calling Bill Shorten’s office this afternoon and urging him to walk away from a deal that will destroy our native forests, undermine our entire Renewable Energy Target and fail to create the clean energy solutions that we actually need.
Call Bill Shorten’s office: (02) 6277 4022
Some points you might want to mention:
• Tens of thousands of clean energy jobs have already been created under the Renewable Energy Target, and it’s attracted millions in investments. We need to be supporting and strengthening our RET – not burning our native forests and pretending it’s sustainable.
• The Liberal Party have introduced this bill to protect Big Coal. Labor can join with the Greens and do the right thing to stop them.
• Over 80% of Australians support our Renewable Energy Target. This legislation goes against everything they support – new, sustainable industries; real action on global warming and shutting down old coal.
• Cutting down and burning our native forests will not only mean we lose these precious old growth forests themselves, but we will lose the biodiversity they support and see huge amounts of carbon released into the atmosphere.
