VIC: Choose Renewables - NEG Snap Action
It’s going down to the wire.
Victorian Labor are gearing up to decide whether to veto or wave through Turnbull’s dirty energy plan when Cabinet meets next week. This our chance to ensure Daniel Andrews and the Victorian Labor Government choose renewables by vetoing the National Energy Guarantee (NEG).
Head here to find out more about the NEG.
Victorian Energy Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio, still has “major” concerns with the National Energy Guarantee (“NEG”), and is worried that “coal ideologues” and “climate sceptics” in the Turnbull government are still calling the shots. (Rein in sceptics or we’ll walk: Victoria’s ultimatum on energy scheme, The Guardian, 31 July 2018). But this isn't enough.
Here’s the good news. Politicians take campaigning from concerned GetUp members extremely seriously -- especially when a state election is on the horizon.
Victorian Labor are making up their minds about the NEG on Monday, so we're holding a snap action on the steps of Victorian Parliament to tell them to choose renewables.
