Today (08/11) the Clean Energy Future carbon price legislation has passed into law after a majority 'yes' vote in the Senate. This is a great step forward in tackling climate change.
It's not just the price on pollution that makes this a big win, it’s the $10 billion in funding to get renewable energy projects off the ground, the $1 billion for a biodiversity fund and the commitment to close 2000MW of coal-fired electricity generation, that’s up to 3 of our dirtiest power stations, that makes this legislation something special.
The passion, commitment and hard work of people like you has brought us to this critical point in our nation’s history.
Thank you for all your efforts to ensure the community heard the truth about putting a price on pollution and the benefits of a clean energy future.
