Climate change is making natural disasters like fires, floods, heatwaves and drought more frequent and more extreme. 

We all know multinational coal, oil & gas producers mine our energy resources, but don't pay tax or royalties to the ATO on the Australian products they export and sell.
They are sneaky feckers.

A $2 levy per tonne of carbon pollution on fossil fuel production in Australia would currently raise around $3 billion a year for the National Climate Disaster Fund.

To the Parliament of Australia --

Climate change is making natural disasters like fires, floods, heatwaves and drought more frequent and more extreme. 

These disasters are already costing ordinary Australians billions of dollars every year.

Every tonne of coal and gas mined in Australia ends up as more greenhouse gas being pumped into the atmosphere, fuelling climate change and making these disasters worse.

These costs will keep increasing as climate change gets worse.

We urge you to establish a National Climate Disaster Fund, funded by a levy on each tonne of all coal, gas and oil produced in Australia.
