There are renewable energy options for WA.

This was the clear message of a forum hosted by Safe Climate Perth on November 13 as part of its campaign calling on the state government to cancel approval for five new or refurbished coal-fired power stations.

Tim Barling from Sustainable Energy Now spoke about the range of options that are available and agricultural scientist Chris Johanson presented the Beyond Zero Emissions plan for 100% renewable stationary energy by 2020.

The Safe Climate campaign includes a push to get 10,000 signatures on a petition calling for no new coal which will be presented to government at a rally on December 11. So far, 3500 signatures have been collected. More information.
