The children are speaking truth to power

Climate damage is here, now. Queensland is suffering catastrophic heat, fires and dust. And floods cause chaos in Sydney.

And amongst all the turmoil is a game changer. The young people of Australia are striking from school to demand our politicians stop climate damage and stop Adani.

The children are speaking truth to power. And it’s time for power to listen. But PM Morrison and Bill Shorten are refusing to #MeetTheKids.

Kids have reported that Shorten’s office cut off their message about stopping climate damage and told them to go to school. The Prime Minister suggested the kids are out of their depth. But they beg to differ.

Will you sign the petition to demand Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten #MeetTheKids?

Ayo, 8, told the media, "I’m going on strike to make politicians think about the decisions they’re making and how they impact me. I can’t vote yet but I still have my right to a future and a world that is fit to live in."

Vivienne, 14, from Sydney, said “I'm really scared for me and for my generation and the generations that are going to come after me.”

This isn’t fair. Young people shouldn’t have to worry about climate change. But this is the reality of our era.

These kids are brave enough to look this problem in the eye and deal with it. So when will our political leaders do the same?

Prime Minister Morrison and Opposition leader Shorten meet coal lobbyists all the time.

We’re calling on them now to face up and #MeetTheKids. Add your name now.

I live in Rural Queensland. We have been trying to tell people for years that ADANI mine & other coal mines rip up the most fertile lands in Queensland. Of course, I worry about climate change, but if you don’t then that’s ok – perhaps worry about the fact that without these fertile lands – we will be unable to provide food to our nation. A major ‘sustainable’ industry of renewable resources is the export of food, beef & produce. We produce award-winning ’world’s best’ produce – we can do so by looking after our land and acting sustainably. Ever noticed that coal mines are located in and around our food/water basins? If you are not worried about climate change, then worry about the quality of food you wish to feed your family. Worry about the loss of ability to ‘trade’ as a country due to the fact we will no longer be able to produce great food – or attract tourists to beautiful places – instead, we will be at the mercy of our neighbouring countries. Tell me again how having a ‘job’ in mining will continue to be beneficial to the country when even our labour becomes imported. If you don’t want to you worry about climate change – worry about the other impacts that these major industries will have … and then be honest… are you looking out for ‘your’ future to earn big? Or are you looking out for our Children’s; Our Country’s future to remain free & sustain life?
Me, I am scared of ADANI. I am scared for the future of my town, my neighbours, my family & my community. I am taking photos now – so when I am asked in 40 years by my grandchildren “What did you do?” – I can tell them I at the very least spoke up! I can show them what I was fighting for… And I can show them what was lost (or knowingly destroyed) because you didn’t care enough about ‘climate change’, ‘environment’, ‘keeping our ’word’ as a nation to act meaningfully & responsibly for a sustainable future’; that you didn’t care for ‘upholding our responsibility to look after our own country’; that perhaps you thought is was took too much energy to ‘invest in a sustainable industry by keeping our country healthy’…. And why? Why didn’t you care? because you got promised 30 coins of silver? I wonder, when (if we can?) in the future we look back at the choices we made today as those that were critical for our future – on what side were you? How will the choices you make today define you when your grandchildren look back?

The government should be forward thinking in its actions not backwards looking. Coal is an industry of the past that pollutes and is clearly damaging for human life on earth. Australia has the opportunity to be leading the world by example in the uptake of renewable energy and with its climate could easily be 100% renewable.
