Malcolm Turnbull Prime Minister of Australia

Dear Malcolm Turnbull

Climate change is accelerating. We are witnessing the increasing impacts of global warming more and more consistently. We cannot safely burn fossil-fuels without damaging the planet for thousands of years. If we are going to have any chance of preventing climate change we must reduce our production of non-renewable energy. Currently the cost for batteries on a solar system is starting from $4000. As part of the affordable energy plan we ask that you increase the discount for solar systems with batteries as it is very expensive to get them installed on our houses.

From health risks to increasing weather changes, there are many reasons to stop using fossil fuels. There are many risks to your health which can be linked to mining non-renewable sources. workers are not the only people at risk from mining but also living nearby a mine can cause a variety of health concerns such as respiratory damage through the high levels of dust and other particles present in mining. The main disadvantage of using fossil fuels is the pollution that they cause. Carbon dioxide is released into the air when fossil fuels are burned. This has been directly linked to global warming, making fossil fuels very dangerous to the general health of our planet. In addition fossil fuels are a finite energy resource. Unlike sunlight, water or wind energy, fossil fuels cannot be renewed. The amount of fossil fuels in the earth today are all that we are ever going to get. This means that once the gas, coal and oil have been used up, there will be no more left.

If Australia’s energy changes over to renewable energy it will have a massive impact on the environment. It’s expensive to do it but once it’s setup it will start paying for itself and be more environmentally friendly.

You, Prime Minister Turnbull need to take action if anything is going to be done about moving to renewable energy sources. You are in the best position to have a say on this issue. If we want to make Australian energy clean then its up to you. It will have positive impacts for everyone so please as part of the affordable energy plan we ask that you increase the discount for solar systems with batteries as it is very expensive to get them installed on ours houses.

Yours sincerely,
Cooper Leitch

Signing my petition will help the issue by putting pressure on Malcolm Turnbull to do something about making a better future for Australia. So far not much is being done to help the environment and if we don't do anything now then its only going to get worse.

Malcolm Turnbull is the Prime Minister of Australia and has the influence to make a change. Hopefully everyone listens to him and he does something about it.

By having his name on this petition it will makes sure that everyone knows who's responsibility it is. Its in his best interest to make a change now as it will only get worse if nothing is done.
