Why is this important?
If we're going to save our planet from the climate crisis we need to urgently invest in renewables and quit coal, but instead the government wants to build new coal-fired power stations. Tony Abbott is upping the ante, harking back to his 'coal is good for humanity days' while joining another serial coal-hugger, Matt Canavan, to defend and promote coal at every opportunity. We can't let them get away with it.
Help us ensure that our energy system is built on clean, cheap renewable energy - not dirty old coal.
