Energy Futures campaign launched

While a community backlash in Gippsland has forced the government to adopt a moratorium on hydraulic fracking operations, exploration for coal, coal seam and tight gas can continue. Exploration permits cover a large proportion of our best food producing land.

Victoria currently produces around 25% of Australia’s food, even though we have less than 4% of the arable land. There is strong resistance to the development of new fossil fuel projects in rural Victoria.

It is clear where the government of Ted Baillieu wants to steer Victoria, actively promoting coal production for local use and even supporting a new coal export industry, while placing impediments in the way of clean energy sources like wind.

Victorians must decide what type of energy future we want:

·    more dirty, coal fired power and the threat of coal exports, or
·    more renewables like wind, solar, wave energy and geothermal

Ted Baillieu has shown he stands with the coal industry.

You can help change that. Speak up for clean energy and local jobs.

Please check our Energy Futures campaign for ideas on taking action, renewable projects that need support, and a good dose of inspiration.
