Help 350.org take on new coal and gas
Help 350.org Australia take on new coal and gas projects in Australia.
Right now 350.org has two campaigns underway that need a little funding love:
The first is our effort to stop new large-scale fossil fuel projects that will trash the environment and blow the global carbon budget. We have joined the effort to stop Whitehaven's Maules Creek mega coal mine expansion that will destroy the Leard State Forest, a numer of the Gomeroi people's sacred sites and, if allowed to go ahead, produce coal that will release 30 million tonnes of CO2 emissions -- the equivalent to the annual emissions of New Zealand's entire energy sector! We're working to build a movement of Australians active in halting new projects nationwide starting with Maules and eventually taking on projects across the country! Find out more at:
Secondly, our divestment campaign - Go Fossil Free Australia - supports individuals and institutions to move their money out of fossil fuels and into cleaner alternatives. Divestment is a powerful way to show the fossil fuel industry that its days are numbered. With divestment partnerships developing around the country and hundreds of commitments underway globally, this campaign has huge potential.
