Why is this important?
At 4.56 pm on the 29th of March 2017, Australia’s dirtiest coal-fired power station, Hazelwood, closed.
The Greens were instrumental in making this happen. So now, we’ve set our sights on the new leader of the dirty, toxic energy pack: Yallourn.
Every day, Yallourn spews out climate destroying emissions and toxic chemicals, including sulfur, nitrous oxide, mercury and small particle pollution. Yallourn is trashing out climate and killing our community.
It's time to replace Yallourn with clean energy and new jobs.
We know we have just 12 years to transition to 100% renewable energy to save us from a climate disaster. And we can do this in a way that creates new industries and jobs in the Latrobe Valley. See our plan here.
Neither Labor nor the Liberals have a plan to move us away from coal and gas, or to reign in the big corporate coal companies.
In fact, in the last term of government, Labor extended the mining license for Yallourn, allowing it to burn coal when we should be moving to clean energy.
So now its up to us!
It's up to all of us to show the new Andrews Labor Government that Victorian's want an end to polluting, toxic coal, starting with Yallourn.
Join our campaign and lets do this!
