Fight Against Coal-Powered Energy

coal-plant-by-Kamil-Porembiński

Target: Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott

Goal: Fight for options like wind farms so Australia can reduce its environmental impact rather than making it worse.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott seems set on moving backwards as other countries move forward in trying to be more environmentally friendly. Abbot has not only reduced Australia’s Renewable Energy Target by a fifth, but he now has blocked government support for wind farms by ordering the country’s Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) to stop investing in wind farms.

Now the entire wind farm industry is at odds, including a massive wind and solar plant that was planned to be built and would be the country’s biggest renewable energy project. Abbot’s reason for this backward thinking? He finds wind farms to be “visually awful,” “noisy” and “ugly.”

Abbott has even gone so far as to campaign for coal-powered energy, an unsustainable type of energy that is damaging to the environment and poses a threat to both communities and animals alike. Windlab, the company responsible for the massive renewable energy project, is now worried that it will become increasingly difficult to find funding now that they won’t have the CEFC.

Tell Tony Abbott to stop with his damaging environmental beliefs, and help fight against coal-powered energy in place of wind farms.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott,

You have not only reduced Australia’s Renewable Energy Target by a fifth, but you now have blocked government support for wind farms, and now a massive wind and solar plant that was planned to be built and would be the country’s biggest renewable energy project is going to have a difficult time getting built.

You may think wind farms are ugly and noisy, but they are a hugely beneficial source of renewable energy that could help save our world, unlike coal, which is an unsustainable type of energy that is damaging to the environment and poses a threat to both communities and animals alike.

Stop with your damaging environmental beliefs, and support state funding of renewable energy sources like wind farms.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
