Seek ICC advice on criminality of expanding fossil fuel production, Petition EN1526 – Principal Petitioner: Dr Andrew Norton

To the Hon. Speaker of the House of Representatives and Members of the House of Representatives

The UN Production Gap report provides the scientific grounds on which to argue that policies or decisions that expand a country's fossil fuel production are immoral. The petitioners assert that Australia's current policy to expand fossil fuel production is anti-science and omnicidal. We therefore ask the House to seek advice from the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court on whether expanding fossil fuel production could be an act of genocide or a crime against humanity. Closes on 10 June 2020.

No 'gas-fired recovery' – The Australia Institute

The Australian Prime Minister's hand-picked National Covid-19 Coordination Commission is stacked with former fossil fuel executives and operates without proper scrutiny, oversight or transparency.

Review Adani's dodgy and dangerous water approvals – 350 Australia

New handwritten notes released by scientists show the Morrison Government ignored the advice of scientific experts and lied about the scientists supporting Adani’s dodgy plan. It looks like the Morrison Government has caved to pressure from Adani and their own Queensland MPs and signed off on a crucial water plan. Call on Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to immediately commit to review Adani’s groundwater approval.
