We need to reduce pollution and make clean energy cheaper through large scale development of solar, wind and geothermal power.
Our economy is too dependent on energy sources that cause pollution. It’s damaging our health and it’s making climate change worse. We need to reduce pollution and make clean energy cheaper through large scale development of solar, wind and geothermal power.
The health of our vital life support systems - rivers, wetlands, forests and oceans - are already under severe stress and our special places like the Great Barrier Reef and Kakadu are under threat. Protecting our environment means healthier air, cleaner water and a safer future for our children.
To restore the health of our environment we need to transition to a cleaner economy.
Here’s what politicians should do:
1. Lead the transition from a pollution dependent economy to a cleaner economy. Ensure there is an incentive to transition to a cleaner economy, by rewarding big companies that cut pollution and charging those that don’t.
2. Make clean energy cheaper. Rapidly scale up clean energy like wind and solar power, making it cheaper, faster.
3. Invest in cleaner, more sustainable cities with better transport systems. Boost spending on public and active transport systems to provide affordable, cleaner transport choices.
4. Rescue our life support systems by protecting and restoring the health of our rivers, wetlands, forests and oceans. Protect our special places like the Murray-Darling, the Kimberley, Kakadu, our forests and create a network of large marine sanctuaries.
