I am deeply concerned about the climate and the extinction crisis . I want to leave a thriving healthy world for my children and grandchildren.

Our planet is far too precious to destroy .

Labor please ensure strong new national laws that actually protect nature and start restoring that which has been damaged.

We also desperately need an independent regulator to enforce strong nature laws.

Please listen and act decisively so my grandkids can live in a world which still has amazing biodiversity, healthy populations of wildlife, an abundance of pristine waterways, clean artesian basins, clean air for viewing the stars, and a glorious and vibrant Great Barrier Reef.
Labor, will you replace dirty fossils fuels like coal, gas and uranium with clean energy from the sun and the wind?

Labor, please ensure strong new national laws that actually protect places like this, and start restoring that which has been damaged. Plus an independent regulator to enforce these laws

Approving new gas and coal at this time is irresponsible madness that is flushing our children’s futures down the drain.
Withdraw fossil fuel subsidies now and invest in renewable technologies for home, business and transport.

Do what the people ask
You are our representative

You were voted in on a climate platform. You promised drastic changes to our environmental laws.
You must do more.

We need far more energy, serious policy and policy implementation into conservation across the board…DO IT NOW!!!!

I would the Labor Party to act for a world where every living thing thrives.
Jan 2023-08-04 15:22:28 +1000
I voted for your party because I thought you would pass laws and make decisions to care for our environment. It would seem that I was wrong.
Shame on you.

Stop allowing the states to log in national parks. Keep the habits of indigenous animals

You were voted in with the promise of doing more…of doing better…by taking action to address this climate crisis. Your time is NOW! Be the leaders we need you to be and save our environment!

Our land abounds in natures gifts , of beauty rich and rare

We are the Custodians of our unique flora and fauna yet we bulldoze their homes away amidst their cries for help.
Please help our failing flora and fauna. We cannot go down in history infamouse for failing them!

The highest priority for Labour needs to be tacking climate change, deforestation, and protecting what is left of the natural world. Labour was voted in on the understanding this would happen. They will be voted out unless visible, immediate and meaningful action takes place NOW.
Ruth 2023-08-04 13:42:46 +1000
Our natural environment is beautifully unique. Please protect it.
Ruth 2023-08-04 13:42:33 +1000
For the sake of our beautiful one and only planet, and particularly for our young people we need to STOP digging and selling dirty fossil fuels like coal, gas. Put all your energy, laws and regulation into maximizing clean energy NOW. Thanks!!
Robin 2023-08-04 13:38:18 +1000
Labor – We need you! We need you to take a stand and make the important decisions that previous governments have been too scared to make. I’m scared. My children are scared. What sort of a world will they have to live in in 20, 50, 70 years time? Please ensure we stop the destruction and extinction and start restoring our beautiful habitat. We need you to be the ones to STEP UP LABOR.
Alison 2023-08-04 13:37:14 +1000
Fix it and fix it now
David 2023-08-04 13:32:57 +1000
The rights of life of all living creatures need to be restored, if we are going to survive on this planet.
Romina 2023-08-04 13:25:20 +1000
My family and I are urging the Australian Labor Party to stop destroying our unique bush and forests and to start taking decisive action against the very real climate change that is taking place here and now!
Rafaela 2023-08-04 13:24:28 +1000
Catastrophic climate changes are exceeding scientific predictions. Please act to cut back fossil fuel production before it’s too late.
Merridy 2023-08-04 13:23:41 +1000
Stop destroying the environment – without it we have nothing. Protect nature now before your inaction limits our quality of life even further. What will it take for you to realize you are negatively affecting the lives of future generations. Strong action is needed now! How do you want to be remembered by history? It’s not looking good at the moment.
Dan 2023-08-04 13:21:47 +1000
The natural world is inextricably linked with our lives. A flourishing and protected environment will enable us to live more enriched and healthy lives too.
Marged 2023-08-04 13:10:12 +1000
Lack of climate action has gone from mere greed and convenience to actual insanity. It has gone from an issue to a crisis. Why is our government, elected to tackle the problem, spending their time and our money ignoring it?
David 2023-08-04 13:07:19 +1000
Dear Government

We elected a government to take action on climate change. There has been insufficient action so far. This is the most significant issue of our time. Kind regards Desiree Leone
Desiree 2023-08-04 13:02:40 +1000
Do a much better job of protecting nature!
Margaret 2023-08-04 12:56:18 +1000
Please promote renewable energy and electric vehicles, ban new coal and gas, and restore the mighty Murray.
Jean 2023-08-04 12:50:39 +1000
We need stronger laws to protect nature and our natural environments. Australia is a world leader in extinctions. This is shameful and must stop. Laws that protect nature and enforcement of these laws is needed NOW.
