Australia’s 5 Demands: this is a petition to our federal government Speaker and the House of Representatives to work for its citizens,  not corporate interests, by implementing these 5 critical yet achievable changes:

1. Use targets and a mechanism to implement a genuine staged transition away from fossil fuels without carryover credits; real reduction in emissions guided by climate scientists- for example: 35 to 40% by 2030 (lower initial target so we have time to build infrastructure), 80% by 2040 (ramping up the benefits of renewables infrastructure), 98% by 2050 (seeing out the last of the old energy paradigms). These goals will NOT destroy jobs; they will create them.

2. Help employees in fossil fuel industries to transition their jobs: genuinely facilitate the building of renewables generation & export industry, based in current coal mining districts so that current mining employees and their families (such as for example, western Qld, WA) are not left behind; and, so that Australia’s participation in the renewables export economy is assured. Aim for many multiples of the energy we use domestically to sell in renewables exports. Provide genuine government support, transparently (see point 4.) to renewables innovators to ramp up the industry.

3. Make individual votes by citizens actually count: COMPLETELY end the revolving door of employment between fossil fuel companies and Parliament House and/or politician’s offices. Severely restrict all corporate lobbying.

4. Legislate that all federal government contracts & grants are to be awarded only ever by open tender. No more water buybacks to the Caymans or Great Barrier Reef Foundation style grants or “Sports Rorts” to be remotely possible. Open tender only, enforced by an independent body. This is OUR money not politicians’ money.

5. Break up the propaganda machines: by enacting viable media ownership restriction laws; no more than 30% in any medium tv/news/radio in any state/territory capital city. We had these laws; reinstate them.
