No new coal and gas
Coal and gas mines, logging native forests and land clearing are threatening our water, our climate, our environment, our native animals and our future. Governments, corporations, and billionaires who enable and profit off the climate crisis are letting us down.
Liberal and Labor continue to take millions in donations from coal and gas billionaires, while approving new coal and gas projects and fast tracking land clearing that could push koalas to extinction.
The only way we can address the climate crisis is by ending coal and gas and moving to a renewable, fossil fuel free future.
Only the Greens have a plan to fight the climate crisis, make polluters pay, and grow jobs to repower our economy renewably.
Will you sign now to move beyond coal and gas to a renewable future, end native forest logging and stop the extinction crisis?
We’re in a climate emergency, we must end coal and gas.
Add your name to the call to move beyond coal and gas to a renewable future, end native forest logging and stop the extinction crisis.

Keep the laws that assess climate impacts of coal
At a time of unprecedented drought and fire events throughout New South Wales, when our farmers, scientists and firies are calling for urgent action on climate change, the NSW Liberal National government is trying to introduce legislation to water down the environmental requirements for approving new coal and gas mines.
Burning coal is the biggest contributor to human-made climate change. It makes fires, heatwaves and drought worse. But the Minerals Council wants to weaken laws that require the climate change impacts of new coal and gas mines in NSW to be assessed as part of the planning approval process.
Coal mined here in NSW has led to around 500 million tonnes of carbon emissions - greater than total emissions from the UK or France.
Sign this petition to keep our environmental laws strong to stop our coal making global climate change worse.
Weakening the laws that require the full climate change impacts to be considered in the assessment of new coal mines is a dangerous backward step that will make climate change worse.
If NSW is genuine about its own goal of net zero emissions by 2050, this legislation should be abandoned.
