“Accelerate” follows Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, during his 2018 tour in Australia as he demands that we accelerate climate action by the Australian government, businesses and communities. Bill is considered as one of the most acclaimed environmental activists in the US. During his time in Australia, he visited five states in just eight days, saw the devastation caused by ocean warming on our Great Barrier Reef, visited Newcastle to meet with union and government officials in the heart of the world’s biggest coal export port, and saw some of the low carbon solution projects underway in Adelaide. Throughout the tour, Bill had three key messages: we need to stop all new fossil fuel projects, switch to 100% renewable energy, and make sure not a dollar more goes to dirty energy. “Accelerate” aims to share, inspire and motivate Australia to get active before the next Australian federal election to ensure climate change is THE issue nationally.
