Car Pollution

Car Pollution

While the rest of the world gets on with cutting pollution from cars through strong efficiency standards, Australian cars guzzle excessive litres of petrol and cough out fumes that damage our climate and our lungs.

Unless we take action, within five years our outdated cars and transport system will become our biggest source of climate pollution, and our federal government is due to make a decision on whether to introduce strong or weak car pollution standards any day now. 

With Prime Minister Turnbull’s energy plan doing little to cut pollution from electricity, this is more important than ever.

Email key decision makers now and ask them to stand up for strong pollution standards for Australian cars.

Say why you care. 

Writing your own subject line and message will have more impact. 

Keep your message short and punchy – a couple of simple sentences explaining why you want cleaner cars and roads is perfect. Personal stories are really powerful. 

Include a call-to-action – ask your car association to publicly back vehicle pollution standards equivalent to the US and Canada. 

Be polite – it’s always best to get the message across in a friendly way.
