A message from our President:
Welcome to the first edition of CCA News for 2018.
2017 was a significant year in our ongoing fight to move away from fossil fuels and transition to clean energy. Millions of dollars were divested from fossil fuels, and major banks moved away from coal and the proposed Adani coal mine. In NSW, the proposed Rocky Hill mine near Gloucester was knocked back by the Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) and AGL confirmed it would close the Liddell coal power plant. But emissions are still too high and need to come down fast. So, this year should be just as big as 2017 as we take on Australia's biggest polluters for a fossil-free future.
The CCA Committee looks forward to working with you all to help us move to a safe climate and energy security for all
A message from the President:
What a busy and successful year CCA has had. We’ve been involved in several front-line campaigns aligned with our charter to raise awareness about climate change issues and impacts, to promote the increased use of renewable energy and to encourage all levels of government to take urgent action on climate change. From supporting Steve Posselt’s kayaking journey along the east coast of Australia collecting signatures for the Climate Emergency Declaration in January, to all the many Stop Adani actions we held (numerous rallies, a concert, a summit, the Human Sign etc.) … and in between we’ve made submissions, we’ve had letter-writing campaigns, we lobbied Council to divest from fossil-fuel investments, we hosted several film nights, we sponsored 2 panels in Energy Forever’s project, we held several Networking evenings with various guest speakers … and so on …
So, thank you to all of you for your membership & support of CCA, your involvement & your commitment to our cause. The CCA Committee wish you all a safe and happy festive season and we look forward to seeing you again in 2018.
