No New Coal and Gas!

Stop new coal and gas mines in NSW!

    No New Coal and Gas!

    Global temperatures are rapidly approaching 1.5 degrees of warming yet governments still aren’t doing what’s necessary to keep our climate safe. 

    With a new Labor minority Government here in NSW we finally have an opportunity to turn things around. Yet they’re signalling strong support for global coal and gas giants like Santos whose proposed mega coal seam gas field threatens the beautiful Pilliga Forest and the land and water of the fertile Liverpool Plains.  

    Meanwhile we’re about to see the biggest potential expansion of coal in this state since the Paris Agreement if the 8 new coal projects in the planning pipeline are approved. It’s madness.

    We don’t need new coal and gas. We need political leaders who are genuine about climate action. This means committing to rapidly phasing out coal and gas and investing in a clean and jobs rich renewable energy future. And taking care of coal workers and communities with a just transition plan that leaves no one behind. 

    Come on NSW. The experts all agree: 
    Climate Action Means No New Coal or Gas.
