Australians are great at coming together in times of crisis - we see it time and again with bushfires, floods and other disasters. We can do extraordinary things when we are motivated by looking after the people and places we care about.
Right now, a large-scale disaster is happening, but because it's more gradual than the spread of a bushfire, we are responding way too slowly.
It's climate change.
Climate change needs urgent coordinated action to prevent the most dangerous and chaotic impacts. We know what needs to be done, we just need consistent and coordinated effort across all sectors of our society, as we had during World War II.
We need our federal and state politicians to lead this grand-scale mobilisation to prevent runaway climate change. Please sign our petition to all Parliamentarians and let's get started on this Australia-wide team effort straight away. Let's not fiddle while Australia burns.
Our great state deserves better.
