Members statement: Transition from gas
This week the Greens introduced our Planning and Environment Amendment (Transition from Gas) Bill 2022 to change the ridiculous planning laws that we have in this state that force new homes to connect to gas when we know just how expensive, how unhealthy and how bad for our climate it is. To tackle the climate crisis and to tackle the rising cost of living we need to get homes off gas, not force them to connect. If the recent federal election made anything clear, people want their governments to go further and faster on tackling climate change. They are prepared to change their vote for it. This is the critical decade for climate action, and we can get to 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030.
