Health and Energy


Our current energy systems are too reliant on fossil fuels, which are harming our environment and ourselves. DEA supports rapid phasing out of coal, gas and oil and replacing it with healthy clean renewable energy. 


DEA calls for 

  • United action across the parties to rapidly phase out coal, oil and gas in recognition of their extreme harms on the health of people and of our environment.
  • An immediate rapid phase out of fossil fuel exports noting that no matter where fossil fuels are burnt, they still add to the burden of disease from climate change and global heating. 
  • No new approvals for coal and gas projects, recognising both their local health harms and their worsening of global warming and climate change.
