  • Waste taxpayers’ money propping up an uneconomic industry during a recession, instead of using stimulus money to solve the long term problems facing Australia.

To reduce emissions, reduce power prices, create jobs, and reboot Australia’s economy, we need to invest in clean, affordable, reliable renewable energy and storage technologies. Email your MP today to amplify our push.

The Climate Council’s Clean Jobs Plan found that 76,000 jobs are ready to go right now across Australia, and rapidly get people back into the workforce while tackling climate change. This is the plan Australia needs right now.

With the Federal Budget just around the corner, it’s time to make your voice heard. Email your Federal MP today to let them know that Australians deserve a clean economic recovery.
