Let our Federal Representatives know - there is a real alternative to the Future Gas Strategy

The Federal Government’s Future Gas Strategy represents an existential threat for Territorians. 

There is an alternative.  

The Future Gas Strategy lays the foundation for gas expansion across Australia, locking us into gas for decades to come. It flagrantly denies climate science by claiming that gas expansion will help us achieve net zero – a claim that no reputable climate scientist would support but is heartily advanced by the oil and gas industry. 

We need strong leadership to transition rapidly to a sustainable future. ECNT’s Recharging the Territory report shows how a redeployment of the Federal Government's $1.5b gas and petrochemicals subsidy for Middle Arm, we could achieve meaningful change for Territorians. 

The report demonstrates that with the same amount of money that the Government wants to use to subsidize toxic heavy industries, we could instead deliver high-quality local jobs, tackle the cost-of-living crisis, provides energy upgrades for every low-income and public housing dwelling, and set the Territory up to be a leader in the sustainable industries of the future.    

Will you let our Territory representatives Luke Gosling MP, Marion Scrymgour MP, and Senator Malarndirri McCarthy know you support a genuinely sustainable vision for the Territory?
