Right now, coal-fired power stations and motor vehicles are pumping out dangerous levels of nitrogen and sulfur dioxide.
More than 3000 Australians die every year from exposure to air pollution. Thousands more suffer serious health issues like stroke, lung cancer and heart disease.
Our national air pollution standards are far weaker than most other countries and are failing to protect our health.
This year, we have a once-in-a-generation chance for Australia to catch up with the rest of the world on pollution control.
Federal and state environment ministers are meeting to review national air pollution standards for nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide for the first time in 21 years.
We have to make sure they hear us loud and clear and commit to stronger standards that could save lives and protect our health.
Email your Minister now and call for stronger national air pollution standards. Together, let’s fight for our right to clean air.
