The world is acting on climate change, while Australia’s politicians are held back by coal lobby groups like the Minerals Council of Australia. We call on all companies and politicians to cut all ties with this anti-climate action industry lobby group.
Thank you for signing!
The Dirt File
For the last 20 years Australian fossil fuel lobby groups have worked to block any chance at the safe climate future we deserve.
Groups including the Minerals Council of Australia have engaged in extensive lobbying and advertising campaigns that seek to undermine government action on the climate crisis. They have benefited from a revolving door that sees key staff go back and forth between the highest positions in politicians’ offices, the public service, coal companies, and the coal lobby.
To create a better, safer, cleaner world for our kids to grow up in, we need the Minerals Council of Australia to stop blocking climate action, and support the just transition to a renewable energy economy.
We acknowledge that we live, work and play on Aboriginal land, and that climate change affects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples first and worst. We stand in solidarity with First Nations people, and we fight shoulder to shoulder for justice.
This campaign is coordinated by 350.org Australia. Our purpose is to educate and inform the public about climate change and its impact on the natural environment, and encourage research into climate change.
