Pollution Free Politics

Despite more than two decades of talking, our climate is at a crisis point because our leaders have allowed themselves to be captured by the fossil fuel industry.

Since the last elections the fossil fuel industry have donated more than $3.7m to the major political parties. In exchange, Governments have forked out more than $7.7bn in taxpayer subsidies to the industry -- more than our total foreign aid budget. That equals a return on investment for the fossil fuel lobby of more than $2000 for every $1 they donated.

If our politicians are serious about climate change, then they need to stop taking money from and giving money to the big polluters.

That's why we are calling on politicians on all sides of the aisle to stand up and sign the Pollution Free Politics Pledge.
