Mr HIBBINS (Prahran): I thank everyone in the Prahran community that has signed the
Prahran climate emergency declaration so far. Our community’s voice is loud and clear. We are in a
climate emergency. We are already experiencing the devastating effects of climate change, and we
need our governments to go further and faster. Continuing to burn coal, opening up our state for gas
drilling, logging our native forests, putting a new tax on electric vehicles as the government is doing
here in Victoria is just not an option.

The solutions are here and now.

We have to go beyond coal and gas. We have to get to 100 per cent renewable energy. It is achievable. We can cut transport emissions and transform our homes and our communities. I will continue to bring our community’s demand for
strong climate action here to Parliament.
