Stop climate change

Stop reckless coal developments in the Great Barrier Reef

Coal exported from Australia, when burnt, creates more greenhouse gas emissions than every other source of emissions in Australia combined. Right now, Australian mining companies are planning to double coal exports.

Greenpeace is speaking out in support of clean energy initiatives around the world by promoting a future that does not rely on fossil fuels for energy.  Read more
