100% renewables campaign launch
On Sunday, 2 May, Climate Action Moreland joined with Beyond Zero Emissions in launching the 100% renewables campaign in Brunswick – calling for a switch from polluting coal power stations to 100% clean green renewable energy like wind and solar.
CAM was joined by over 60 climate action groups around the country also launching the 100% renewables campaign in their local area.
‘We want all our local candidates, Labor, Liberal and Green, to commit to supporting renewable energy. Right now we have a choice – we can continue our dependence on fossil fuels or we can make the switch to 100% renewable energy Mechanisms like a national feed in tarif are proven to be effective and will drive investment in large scale technology.’ said launch organiser Ellen Roberts.
We have the community support for the change, what we lack is the political will from the major parties. The demise of Rudd’s emissions trading scheme means we need better, more effective initiatives.’
