More Coal = More Poverty

Coal can kill. 

The real, human cost of burning more coal is measured in public health catastrophes and life-shattering humanitarian disasters. 

Right now, greedy coal polluters like Adani are threatening to push millions of people into deeper poverty. And by aggressively pushing expanded coal exports and failing to curb Australia’s own pollution, our government is backing them all the way. 

We know, through our life-changing work globally, that the best way to tackle poverty and climate change is to scale up clean, renewable energy and stop burning dirty, polluting coal. 

It’s time for our political leaders to stop the greedy coal polluters from destroying people’s lives.
