We all know that coal and gas are causing the climate crisis, that we need to transition as quickly as possible to renewables, and that this starts with not opening any new coal and gas mines.
But how do we stop individual new coal and gas mines from going ahead? And how do we build the pressure to get the government to ban all new coal and gas? What’s behind the Labor government’s recent support for gas expansion? What alternative industries can we build to replace coal and gas mining as a source of Australia’s wealth?
Come hear from Australian Greens leader Adam Bandt, Elizabeth Watson-Brown federal MP for Ryan and Moira Williams co-founder of Tipping Point and Move Beyond Coal to unpack these and other crucial questions.
The Greens have recently managed to force the current Labor government to take some steps in this direction, but the Labor party is still taking enormous donations from fossil fuel corporations and approving new coal and gas projects. So there’s still so much work to be done.
