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.

The environmental decisions our leaders make today will either elevate Australia toward a global climate disaster or is a solution and a step toward sanity! I’m asking you on behalf of my grandchildren to think harder about the choices you make.

The Australian Government needs to join those other nations who are leading the world in responsible responses to climate change. Waiting for better policies before I cast my vote.

We have the technology. It only makes sense to be building renewable and sustainable systems and lead by example.

Its TIME the people who make decisions “so called in the National and World’s interest”. STOP being self-obsessed, drop their ego and do what’s best for the planet we ALL rely on. They need a conscious and to look around and see what they’re really doing to our beautiful planet. Just so they remain in “power”!! As truthfully they won’t be remembered and admired in having a hand in making decisions that are slowly destroying our planet.

Australia’s embarrassingly behind where we need to be with climate targets, but much better late than never!

The scientists have the answers; many people have the will; we’re working to try and convince those who have the power to implement change.
