The Morrison Government committed Australia to a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
It's a welcome shift, but not enough.
The science is clear. We need to cut climate pollution by more than half this decade – for our children, for our communities, for our future. And we need ambitious targets and policies to get us there.
It’s time to act. Right now, climate is the headline issue in Australia. We must seize the opportunity. Both major parties’ current climate plans focus on 2050 – together let’s shift their goalposts to 2030 and climate action now.
We need to act today for a safe climate. Email your local MP and call on them to cut climate pollution by more than half this decade!
There is a pre-written email to your MP so you can just enter your details and hit send. However, you're welcome to edit the message in anyway or write your own email from scratch.
What's in the email?
The pre-written email asks your MP to do the following:
- Work with all our elected representatives to cut climate pollution by more than half this decade
- Seize the opportunity and deliver climate solutions in our communities, so we can create a healthy future and reap economic benefits
- Support MP Zali Steggall's Climate Change Bill in Parliament that sets the ambitious targets and plans that our government needs to deliver climate action that is in line with the science and what Australians need
