THANK YOU for your work to convince Australian environment ministers that clean air matters.

Late last year, Australia’s nine environment ministers met to decide on new national air pollution standards for coarse particle (PM10) and fine particle (PM2.5) emissions. Unfortunately…Commonwealth Environment Minister Greg Hunt who pledged ‘clean air is a signature objective of my watch’ was entirely silent on the matter of the new standards…At a time when we’re seeing a reappearance of deadly Black Lung Disease among coal miners, it’s clear that self monitoring by industry just won’t work…There’s a lot of work to do but, like you, we’re committed to the goal of achieving clean, healthy air for all Australians.
