Campaign launch: Environment Victoria's Paid to Pollute.
Sunday, February 17
Richard Denniss and Environment Victoria explore the case for removing fossil fuel subsidies. Every year Australian taxpayers foot a $10 billion bill to subsidise polluting activities. Fossil fuel subsidies are such a big problem that the International Energy Agency has said that phasing them out could provide half of the carbon savings needed to stop dangerous levels of climate change. Environment Victoria is launching an exciting new campaign called 'Paid to Pollute' which aims to build sustained pressure for the removal of all fossil fuel subsidies in Australia.
