Zali Steggall's Climate Change Bill

19 October 2021

Labor strongly supports debate on climate change in Parliament.

We welcome constructive efforts on climate action and will continue to engage with Zali Steggall about her Bill.

However, in order for the Bill to be considered, the Government must allow a full debate in Parliament, and it remains divided on even the basic science of climate change.

Their inaction leaves Australians exposed to environmental threats, while locals face risky projects such as the proposed Wallarah 2 long wall coal mine in our water catchment and exploration for oil and gas off the Coast under the proposed extension of the Petroleum Exploration Permit 11 (PEP11).
