Victorian Liberals: Match Labor's 2035 Climate Targets! | Friends of the Earth Melbourne

The Andrews Labor government has announced that if returned to power in November at the Victorian State Election, it will set targets for Victoria of 95% renewable energy and 75-80% emissions reduction by 2035, plus move the state target of net-zero emissions forward from 2050 to 2045. The question now for the Victorian Liberal Party is whether it commits to matching these game-changing climate and energy commitments ahead of the election. Will you call on Matthew Guy and the Victorian Liberals to match (or beat!) these targets?

The Hollywood studios must commit to more, and better, climate stories in their films because the climate crisis is the biggest story of our time. If a significant number of signatures is achieved, studio insiders who recognize the urgency of the climate crisis will champion this petition within the industry.

Petition EN1041 - Declare a Climate Emergency  Noah Bell

The overwhelming majority of climate scientists around the world have concluded that the climate is changing at unprecedented rates due to anthropogenic causes. The result of these changes will be catastrophic for future generations, and so we must act now to minimise both human and environmental destruction. We therefore ask the House to immediately act and declare a climate emergency in Australia. And introduce legislation that will with immediacy and haste reduce the causes of anthropogenic climate change.
