Message in the Sky 27th August

On Sunday, Tony Abbott met with Environment Minister Greg Hunt and Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane in a closed meeting. They have in their hands the recommendations from their stacked review of the Renewable Energy Target and their sights are clearly set on tearing down solar for Australia.

More than 1.3 million Australians have gone solar thanks to the Target and another 2 million homes will install a solar system if it is left in place. Together we must stop Tony Abbott from this misguided attack on solar and Australia’s renewable energy future. 

That’s why on Wednesday 27th August, Solar Citizens is heading to Canberra for an important event to hand over our +23,000 signatures Keep Solar Strong petition to the government calling on them to protect the Renewable Energy Target. We’ll hand over this huge petition and write an unmissable message - SAVE SOLAR - across the skies above Parliament House so that Tony Abbott and government MPs simply won’t be able to ignore it. On the lawns in front of parliament we’ll be speaking to media and setting up a huge display of solar panels made from thousands of signed Keep Solar Strong postcards from around the country.

But we need your help to make this message to Tony Abbott and the government even bigger, louder and stronger. 
Will you take two vital steps today that will help us take a strong message to Canberra:

  1. Sign the Solar Citizens petition to Tony Abbott asking him to Keep Solar Strong and help us get to 25,000 signatures
  2. Chip in $20, $50 or whatever you can afford to help us put this SAVE SOLAR message in the skies above Parliament House

Beyond Coal Forum: 4th August, 2010

Beyond Coal

On Wednesday 4th August Climate Action Newcastle will be holding a forum for the community to learn about the potential of renewable energy, and start talking about a future where we don’t need to burn dirty coal to produce electricity anymore.

The panellists will speak on a range of related issues, including the technical challenges and solutions, how communities can take action to create the future they want to see, and how the transition will affect jobs.

A representative from Beyond Zero Emissions will be attending to launch their recently released Zero Carbon Australia Stationary Energy Plan. This plan shows how we could provide 100% Renewable energy for Australia by 2020, including how much it would cost.

We will hear from Scott Kinear about how a community have set up their own wind farm in Victoria, and from Dr Luis Crespo about how Concentrating Solar Thermal technology is providing baseload power in Spain.

There will be lots of questions and answers so please come along to listen, learn and participate. The forum starts at 6.30pm at Newcastle City Hall. Entry is by a gold coin donation. We hope you can join us.
