I bet you’re sick of hearing all the spin about climate change. We are too.
Shock jocks on soap boxes. Government doublespeak. Big polluting companies funding ad campaigns and sweet-talking politicians at expensive dinners.
It doesn’t stop. And this year, with a global climate meeting in Paris, there will be more spin than ever.
But 2015 feels different. There’s new momentum. Charged by people power, countries around the world are finally taking steps to tackle climate change. Just last year 51,720 amazing people took action with ACF on climate change to hold our government and big polluters to account.
We have a strong campaign planned for Paris and beyond. Will you be part of it?
Our community of people who care about tackling climate change is growing fast, and we need you too. Will you make it 51,721?
In Paris in November, world leaders will meet to make decisions about cutting pollution and tackling climate change. Each and every country must take action.
But right now, the Abbott government is taking us backwards. In just one year, Australia has:
- Slid from 11th to 39th for clean energy investment
- Killed the law that made polluters pay
- Tried to take climate change off the global G20 agenda
We want a government that stands up for our communities, not one that's a puppet of the big polluting companies.
This year, we’ll show our politicians we want a clean and safe – not dirty and dangerous – energy future. And we’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen. Together, with you and hundreds of thousands of other Australians, our voice can be louder and more powerful than any ad campaign.
We’ll organise in our towns, suburbs, workplaces, schools and communities to build the pressure we need to make sure our politicians put the health of our communities first.
We’ll demonstrate that even if our political decision makers aren’t ready to lead, we are. And we expect that leadership from the people we vote for.
It’s time for action.
