‘Stop Puffing Wind All Over the Place!’ 189 Conversations about Renewable Energy
100% renewables campaign
Get some backbone. Stop chasing the dollar. Invest in the future!
Please do what’s best for the country not what’s best for industry!!
These responses were indicative of the themes that emerged from conversations that CAM volunteers had when they spoke to some 189 people in the Coburg Brunswick area earlier this year as part of the 100% Renewables campaign.
Frustration at government was the underlying sentiment. Frustration at the lack of vision, the lack of courage, the lack of a sustained and cohesive approach, the small steps being taken to support renewables, and a sense of time slipping by. There was strong support for the need to develop a plan to move to 100% renewables and to put a price on pollution. The other key message was that the government needs to meet head on the scare campaign from vested interests against renewables. For the full report please click on the link below.
This research was part of the 100% Renewables campaign and fed into the 14000 responses collected across the country with the results being presented to the Multi Party Climate Change Committee in June. The results of the CAM survey were highly consistent with the national picture on renewable energy and enabled a strong message to be conveyed to the Multi Party Committee.
