Ted Baillieu’s resignation presents the Coalition with the opportunity to dump the former-Premiers regressive anti-wind farm laws (called VC82).
Research by Friends of the Earth estimates that the wind policy championed by Ted Baillieu has cost Victoria around $887 million in lost or stalled investment.
Meanwhile, much of our best farmland is under exploration for coal or gas. Gippsland produces food worth $1.3 billion each year, yet the fossil fuel industry is hoping to greatly expand mining operations across this region.
The new Premier, Denis Napthine, must show he is listening to community concerns about new coal and gas. Please sign our petition now to let the Premier know you support action on climate change and want Victoria to transition from polluting fossil fuels to clean renewable sources of energy.
