The past year has been a record-breaking year for heatwaves, bushfires, and droughts, and a year where 22% of the Great Barrier Reef died because of climate change caused by the coal, oil and gas industries. Despite decades of warnings from scientists, environmental groups like Greenpeace and even government departments, our governments have failed to tackle the coal industry because of the power they wield over decision-makers. We know we can’t trust politicians to solve climate change, so instead we’re pulling the rug out from underneath the industry by going directly after the one thing they can’t do without – finance. In Australia Commonwealth Bank has lent more money to fossil fuels than any other bank since the Paris Climate Agreement – $3.9 billion, according to research by the incredible group, Market Forces. What’s more, CommBank still has not ruled out funding more coal mines, ports, and expansions. It’s time for action!
