Mudgee Coal Alert
Mudgee Coal Alert is a community action group in the Upper Hunter opposing new coal expansions in the Mudgee region.
Three large coal mines operate north-west of Mudgee. Their approvals allow them to produce a combined volume of up to 58 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) until 2038.
Climate science and the International Energy Agency have declared that to ensure a safe climate future no more new coal can be mined.
All three mines are currently planning to expand!
If these expansion plans are approved it will make a mockery of NSW Government Climate Change target of 50 per cent emissions reduction on 2005 levels by 2030.
The target of net zero emissions by 2050 will be impossible.
Any expansion of fossil fuels is dangerous and irresponsible.
Don’t turbo charge climate change!
It is time to put a stop to the further expansion of coal in the Mudgee Region.
