This morning, we stand united with scientists, intellectuals, academics and forty other non-government organisations calling for a halt to the expansion of coal exports.
Because Australians are suffering the impacts of climate change while our country expands its biggest contribution to global greenhouse pollution. We do not want to see people suffer, so together we are breaking the silence on coal and calling for an end to Australia's coal export expansion.
We understand that it is not easy for Australia to talk about the role its coal exports play in driving climate change, but we can no longer maintain our silence.
Our coal is a contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions which have worsened extreme weather. People at home and abroad are suffering as a result. Let’s stand up and put a stop to it.
