Environment Victoria along with YCAN and a number of other environmental groups has been running a campaign to Replace Hazelwood, Australia’s dirtiest power station, with clean energy. Hazelwood is responsible for almost 15 percent of Victoria’s and 3 percent of Australia’s greenhouse pollution all on its own. Finally the chance to replace it is within reach…
The Federal Government is currently in negotiations with the owners of Hazelwood and other polluting power stations to close down three of these big polluters. The negotiation deadline is 30 June – just over five weeks away. But recent media reports suggest that the government might walk away from the negotiation table – leaving Hazelwood and other power stations polluting for decades to come.
Unless the government receives pressure from people across the country this crucial moment to Replace Hazelwood, cut pollution, and bring online clean renewable energy could be lost.
That’s why Environment Victoria in partnership with Change.org have built a massive petition to tell our government to close the deal on Hazelwood.
Please sign the petition on the Change.org website, and be a part of replacing Hazelwood once and for all.
Many thanks from the YCAN team!
