Market Forces: Now, who are really the biggest lenders to dirty coal power plants? We have just launched a new section of our website – Tracking The Money – that makes it easier to find out which banks are supporting different sections of the fossil fuel industry. Check out our first page on coal power at http://www.marketforces.org.au/trackingthemoney/coalpower (it’s a little rough and ready but we’ll keep improving it!)

Just signed the @Market_Forces petition calling for banks to divest from the Hazelwood coal power plant. Join me > http://t.co/iqBOSaPIv9
