Dear Opposition Leader Bill Shorten,
Subsidising coal through the green energy bank is like pouring money from the the health budget into asbestos.
Don't allow the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to fund dirty coal power.
In 2011, the Greens fought to establish the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC), or the green energy bank, securing $10 billion for clean energy. Since then it has backed renewable energy projects across the country like $20 million for a solar farm in Ross River and $67 million for the Ararat wind farm.
Now, the Coalition government wants to channel billions of dollars in clean energy funding into building new coal-fired power stations. Coal kills and Malcolm Turnbull knows it.
Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg will introduce legislation to allow the CEFC to fund dirty coal projects. To block this move, we must powerfully come together and force Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to vote against this legislation.
Join the campaign now.
