Get polluters out of politics

Get polluters out of politics

Sign the Pollution Free Politics Pledge.

Why is this important?

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

Reasons for signing

  • We need to do everything to get off fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We don't have carbon budget left for a safe climate so that means making existence much harder for fossil fuel companies rather than easier: stopping donations to political parties and fuel subsidies are just the basic no-brainers. In any case, they're dying so it makes absolutely no sense to keep them going. The largest privately-owned coal company, Peabody, just went bankrupt.
  • I am angry my tax dollars are used to subsidize commercial interests in the mining, energy & transport sectors. Politicians cutting social welfare budgets to support the big corporate campaign contributors must stop.
  • Labor needs to quit the habit and go coal turkey Tanya.
