Australia | Petition:

Stop coal and gas handouts | Australian Conservation Foundation

Students paying off their HECS debts generate more than twice the government revenue than gas companies paying Australia’s gas extraction tax (Petroleum Resources Rent Tax). $4.9 billion from students, $2.3 billion from gas companies like Woodside. Petition demands: "To the Prime Minister, Energy Minister, Environment Minister and Treasurer: End coal and gas in Australia to ramp up climate action. That means: This decade, replacing existing coal, gas and uranium exports with a renewable-powered exports industry and climate-positive careers for communities. No new coal and gas projects or infrastructure. Stop spending public money on the fossil fuel industry – fund climate solutions instead."
