Electrification will help protect our health and our climate

Victoria has started the process of moving away from gas
However:

12 Apostles Victorian gas drilling

If we moved households and industry to cleaner, cheaper and safer electricity, there would be no gas shortage 

What about Victoria’s “gas shortfall”?

Gas substitution and fuel switching would practically eliminate any shortfall according to the Northmore Gordon Report.- discussion here, download here.

Northmore Gordon Report Figure

Victoria must accelerate the transition away from fossil gas and commit to no new gas infrastructure

Fossil gas damages our health and our climate

  • People know burning coal damages our climate, but the impact of ‘natural gas’ is less well known
  • Burning gas is bad for our health right now.
  • The government plans for massive gas expansion could supercharge our climate crisis, further threatening a safe, clean sustainable future.
We have good affordable alternatives right now

We have the solutions, they just need to be scaled and implemented

 

The gas industry has poor medium and long term prospects

Five reasons why gas is already becoming superseded from our blog on gas impacts and campaigning:

Where should Australia be headed?

We have the technology to move away from coal – it’s renewables and storage with improved grids

We have the technology to move away from gas – it’s electrification (heat pumps) and development of green hydrogen

We have the technology to move away from oil – it’s a move to electric vehicles and green hydrogen for heavy transport

Renewables will increase our energy self sufficiency and help us avoid carbon tariffs as the world pivots away from fossil fuels

Australia can be a renewable energy superpower –  exporting electrons, green hydrogen and clean manufactured goods
