Climate Compensation Fund Now
Cyclone Niran has cut electricity to almost 40,000 Queenslanders disrupting virtually all aspects of life and posing risks to health and safety. Despite extreme weather events like floods, fires and cyclones battering different parts of our beautiful country with alarming regularity, ordinary Australians are still reaching into their own pockets to pay for the damage done.
The mining and burning of coal, oil and gas are the biggest drivers of climate change, which impacts all extreme weather events including cyclones.
Climate change means that cyclones like this happen with more frequency and severity.
These disasters are costing our community billions of dollars every year, and the costs will keep increasing unless emissions are cut by reining in the mining and burning of coal, oil and gas.
It’s time for the coal, oil and gas companies that are responsible for the climate crisis to start footing the bill for cleaning it up.
As well as a commitment to phasing out fossil fuels, Australia needs a Climate Compensation Fund paid for by the coal, oil and gas industries so they can finally pick up the tab for the damage they have caused.
To Scott Morrison,
Climate change is already increasing the intensity and frequency of many extreme weather events like fires, floods, heatwaves, cyclones and droughts.
The impacts of climate disasters on people, property, communities and the environment are immense and estimated to cost Australians around $13 billion per year.
As well as a commitment to phasing out fossil fuels, Australia needs a climate compensation fund paid for by the coal, oil and gas industries so they can finally pick up the tab for the damage they have caused.

Tell Scott Morrison that it’s time for the fossil fuel polluters who are responsible for the climate crisis to start footing some of the bill for cleaning it up.
