Scott Morrison has announced $2b of public money will go into the so-called 'climate solutions fund', a re-branding of Tony Abott's Emissions Reduction Fund - which pays fossil fuel companies - and has seen Australia's emissions rise for the past 7 years.

This is a slap in the face to all Australians who want to see a real emission reduction policy to stop damage to our climate. To those who want clean air and a safe planet for the next generation.

It intensifies dangerous and extreme weather events like floods, heat-waves, droughts, bushfires and cyclones.
But this Liberal Party will stop at nothing to keep propping up climate-wrecking coal corporations. That's why we won't let them sweep this story under the rug.
If we can expose their lies and generate enough backlash, together we leave the government with two options:

2. Admit they don't have one
TELL THE LIBERAL PARTY - ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
