The world's scientists and governments agree. The time to stop climate damage is now. 

And we have the solutions here, now — and ready to go.

On October 31, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) will bring world leaders together to decide on the action we all take to ensure a healthy and safe future.

Let’s tell our elected representatives to get behind the solutions we all agree on, before this crucial moment.  

Australia is one of the sunniest, windiest places on earth — we have huge opportunities to power our lives with clean, renewable energy this decade and export our sunshine to the world.

We can’t wait any longer. Climate damage is here. The solutions we need are available and ready to renew our communities.

Call on our elected representatives to work together and do better.

They must act now to secure and create climate-positive jobs and do our part to cut pollution this decade — to keep people and wildlife safe from dangerous, climate-fuelled bushfires, droughts and storms.

Australia has the abundant clean energy, the tools and the talent to do the job. Let’s get on with it.

Sign this open letter to all Members and Senators in the Australian Parliament.

Open letter

To all Members and Senators in the Australian Parliament:

  • Power our communities and transport with clean energy. Replace coal and gas with renewable energy in the next decade.
  • Send our sunshine around the world with clean energy exports like green hydrogen, steel and aluminium.
  • Get coal and gas money out of politics and put people back in. Stop accepting dirty donations from coal and gas companies and ban big political donations to reduce their influence on decision-making.
  • Save our big backyard: protect and restore our forests, wetlands and mangroves for our climate and for the animals that call them home.

We will all suffer and your kids and grandkids will bear the hardships of your inaction on this issue. Makes me ill to see such lethargy among politicians who are meant to serve the community. What a waste.

We know what the problem is – our continued use of fossil fuel is polluting the atmosphere, the oceans and all aspects of this planet. Quite soon, it will no longer be livable for our type of life form. We also know what the solutions are – the 5 solution areas are not new – just do it. We cannot open new coal, gas or oil mines. NONE. NO MORE. NOW. The IEA and IPPC said this clearly last year, EVERY credible climate and associated scientist says this. RENEW AUSTRALIA WITH THESE CLIMATE SOLUTIONS.

Australia needs to the swap from logging and timbers, we need to get in the hemp production. Less production time more versatile and manufacture many things. Henry Ford made the hemp plastic car about 1920/30
Mackay in central qld was founded on hemp and sugar cane.

Our politicians know what has to be done. They simply won’t because they’re unsure whether it will affect their chances at the next election. We must all ensure they understand it most definitely will.

Climate damage because of global temperature rise is the single most pressing issue of this century. PLEASE act now using existing solutions to reduce Carbon emissions by 75% by 2030.

Renewable energy makes sense environmentally and economically – and politically – people will vote in this election for who is most likely to act for climate change policies.
