There’s nothing worse than having to hear about floods and fires in your electorate, and then having to hear that the NSW Labor government wants to scale back our climate targets.
Labor’s current Climate Bill has weaker interim targets than the former Coalition government and will breach the Paris Agreement by locking us in to 2 degrees of global heating with a net zero by 2050 target.
If we don’t have real climate action, we’ll experience further economic losses, food, insurance and health costs will go up, and we’ll pay much higher energy bills. Millions of jobs in industries including tourism and farming are at risk.
The Greens are calling for:
- net zero emissions by 2035
- Replace all coal and gas with cheap, clean and reliable renewable energy by 2030
- Immediately end native forest logging
- A climate plan based on science and survival
We are in a climate emergency. It threatens the safety of the environment, people, our health, water, ability to grow food, and the air we breathe. The stakes couldn’t be higher.
The Greens won’t stand by and let this happen. Sign the petition and tell Labor to act further and faster on climate!
