More great news to wake up to this morning, as the Dudgeon Point coal export terminal has withdrawn its application for approval! The sharks are circling closer around Abbot Point (metaphorically—and possibly literally too).

The Australian today features the full page ad that we (and our friends) put in there, thanks to those who donated! Being in one of Australia's most prevalent newspapers, it'll be difficult for the big banks to ignore it.

Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon, is asking pension funds to divest from fossil fuels, and to instead invest in renewable energy.

His comment comes during the press conference at the presentation of the 5th IPCC summary report for policy makers (held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 2 November 2014).

Join Mr Ban in asking super funds to divest from fossil fuels using Super Switch and clicking "ask for fossil fuel divestment" on the pages of super funds: www.superswitch.org.au

(We personally would been a little more direct and slightly less polite than Mr Ban!)

Massive news breaking this morning. Citi have made an awesome statement ruling out the funding of the Abbot Point coal port expansion while the Wall Street Journal is also reporting that JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs have also indicated they won't support any new investment in Abbot Point! Tell the big four Australian banks to do the same and rule out funding Reef destruction at Abbot Point! www.marketforces.org.au/abbotpoint
