350.org Australia aims to rapidly end fossil fuels by building a global climate movement.
The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a liveable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 415 parts per million to below 350 ppm.
We believe that a global grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. The movement is rising from the ground up all over the world and is uniting to create the solutions that will create a better future for all. 350.org Australia is a not-for-profit project helping build this movement from our corner of the globe.
Together we can build our collective power to win campaigns

This report is the product of hundreds of conversations with people in communities across Australia, thousands of submissions to the government’s National Gas Infrastructure Plan (NGIP), and online surveys.
It’s clear that Australians do not want their tax contributions handed to oil and gas companies. There are significant concerns that these companies intend to export the majority of gas extracted, pay little or no tax, and make it all but impossible to meet the global goal of keeping warming to well below 1.5

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is pushing to open up new gas basins by subsidising the development of five strategic basins with an allocation of $28.3 million for the Beetaloo, North Bowen, Galilee, Gunnedah and Perth basins. These are significant gas basins, containing large volumes of gas, spread across Australia.
This analysis shows that if the gas from these five basins is extracted and burnt it will:
Cancel out the emission savings from the Government’s flagship climate policies five times over.
We are almost at the end of this year of fires, storms, and a global pandemic, and I hope you are having some time with loved ones to rest and relax.
At 350.org our small team of staff and big grassroots movement has worked hard to keep up the momentum for climate action.
The gas industry has grown into Western Australia’s (WA’s) largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Five facilities in WA have been a key driver of rising carbon emissions nationally, while the overturned state-wide fracking ban could drive up further emissions.
All this in a critical decade for climate action when the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned of the need to drastically reduce emissions in order to avoid tipping over 1.5
