We Demand Clean Air
We all have the right to breathe clean air. But right now, coal-fired power stations are pumping out toxic emissions that are increasing our risk of serious illness.
That’s why we’re introducing a Bill to tighten emissions restrictions on all coal-fired power stations, calling on the NSW Government to enforce installation of emission control technology that has long been standard across the United States, Europe and China.
For too long, coal-fired power stations have profited, refusing to pay for new emission control technology while forcing communities to pay the price with higher rates of serious illnesses like heart disease, lung cancer and asthma. And it’s not just people living nearby who are at risk – these toxic emissions travel over 200kms, across Sydney and throughout the State.
By tightening emissions restrictions on all coal-fired power stations in NSW, we can put the costs of managing their pollution back on the fossil fuel industry and protect the health and wellbeing of our communities.
Sign our petition demanding coal-fired power stations reduce their emissions now.
