My fossil funding bank has, since 2008, invested over 5 billion dollars in coal, oil and gas projects in Australia.

Everyone knows burning fossil fuels is the prime cause of climate change.
Even climate deniers know it. They just can't bear to admit it.
We know the impacts of climate change...
We are getting stronger storms, floods, droughts and fires.
We are destroying forests and farms for coal and gas mines.
|Bushfires like this are becoming more intense|
Due to ocean acidification, we are losing plankton, the basis of the ocean food-chain, which is impacting all marine fish species. Those species that we may wish to harvest sustainably, or those that we may wish to just to marvel at and let be whether it benefits us or not.
|The Corroboree Frog is at risk |
due to drought, fire and ongoing warming
destroying its alpine habitat.
|Bleached Coral in the Great Barrier Reef|
is not a living habitat for fish
Ongoing investment in fossil fuels will worsen these conditions and it is morally wrong.
No one should be funding new fossil fuel project when we have cheaper renewable options like wind.
So I, and thousands of others are taking our money out of these investments.
This week, over $AUD 100 million is being removed from Australian fossil funding banks.
