“We Say Yes” to a Price on Carbon Pollution
STATEMENT
“We Say Yes” to a Price on Carbon Pollution
Climate change is already affecting our country, our communities, and the survival of theworld’s poor. This year, we have an opportunity to tackle climate change through a price oncarbon pollution.To reduce pollution and embrace a cleaner and healthier future Australia urgently needs to puta fair price on pollution. It’s reasonable to ask the big polluters to pay a fair amount per tonne of carbon they emit so they have an incentive to pollute less.We say yes to embracing a cleaner and healthier future by placing a fair price on pollution. Wesay yes to rewarding businesses who do the right thing, and giving other businesses a reason toclean up their act.Saying yes to a price on pollution means saying yes to investment, innovation, and new jobsbased on renewable energy that never runs out. In a country abundant with sun and wind, theseindustries have waited years to flourish while Australia has delayed.Putting a price on pollution will release billions of dollars that will be used to support lowincome households, protect jobs, drive innovation in adaptation and clean energy projects andtechnologies, and support Australian farmers who want to protect the land for futuregenerations.We say YES to a price on pollution and renewable energy investment, YES to jobs and YES toprotecting our ecosystems, health and environment before it’s too late. Will you join us?
