The Honourable Premier Dr Denis Napthine: Let's get Victoria back on track: clean energy, protect our farms

    1. Petition by

      Friends of the Earth Australia

Ted Baillieu's resignation presents the Coalition with the opportunity to dump the former-Premiers regressive anti-wind farm laws (called VC82).

Research by Friends of the Earth estimates that the wind policy championed by Ted Baillieu has cost Victoria around $887 million in lost or stalled investment.

Meanwhile, much of our best farmland is under exploration for coal or gas. Gippsland produces food worth $1.3 billion each year, yet the fossil fuel industry is hoping to greatly expand mining operations across this region.

The new Premier must show he is listening to community concerns about new coal and gas.

      We need to take the threat of climate change seriously so that the future generations can experience the same environmental pleasures, that the government seem to be taking advantage of.
