No AGL gas terminal in Westernport Bay

AGL_AGM_Sept_2018.jpgAGL are still Australia’s largest climate polluters. They paint themselves as a green and clean company while remaining Australia’s biggest emitter of C02!

They have a plan to turn Westernport Bay into a massive gas import terminal. This will threaten the beautiful Westernport coastline which is a Ramsar-listed wetland and home to rare marine life and migratory birds. Worse still it will increase climate pollution from more dirty fossil fuels we don’t need.

EVENTS and ACTIONS

 

Peninsula’s biggest paddle out.
Show your appreciation for our bay.
A peaceful protest of AGL's proposal.

Sunday Jan 6, 2pm – 6pm, 2019.

Shoreham Beach

AGL plan to permanently moor a floating storage regasification unit at Crib Point in Westernport bay. This unit is a whopping 300m long x 45m wide. With boats coming in and out of the bay the Whales, Dolphins, Seals and other critters that call the bay home are in danger. On top of that the regasification process sucks in 450 million litres of organism rich seawater, chlorinates it and spews out dead water 7 degrees cooler than the ambient temperature.

Join us in kick ass community for this epic event! This is a day to come together and celebrate our beautiful Bay. All welcome, kayaks, sups, surfboards, boogie boards, flippers, drift wood, anything that floats!
