NATURE CONSERVATION COUNCIL OF NSW wants 100% renewable energy by 2020

The Nature Conservation Council of NSW (New South Wales), Australia (founded1955)  states “The Nature Conservation Council works to conserve nature and protect the water we drink, the air we breathe and the places we love.  We are a non-profit, non-government organisation representing 120 community environment groups across NSW. Our aim is to protect our precious natural environment.” (see: http://nccnsw.org.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=15&Itemid=123 ).

The Nature Conservation Council of NSW states: “Join the call for 100% renewable energy by 2020! The devastating impacts of extreme weather conditions have taken a tragic toll around the country, particularly in Victoria. Climate change will increase the frequency and severity of extreme weather events. We have no time to lose in cutting our greenhouse gas emissions for the chance of a safer climate future.The burning of fossil fuels is the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions. Australia has the resources and capability to make the transition to 100% renewable energy, in a way that supports affected coal-based communities and which creates thousands of green jobs.” [1].
