Marion Council to declare a Climate Emergency

Marion Council to declare a Climate Emergency

Dear Mayor,
Please acknowledge and declare a Climate Emergency and join 39 Councils of Australia (as of 14/08/19), and 800 world wide, representing approximately 140 million people.

Why is this important?

The Marion community want the council to declare a Climate Emergency.
What IPCC first predicted, if there was no action to reduce greenhouse gases, has become our reality. We are living in a Climate Emergency. Our young people are aware, scared and angry.
Across the globe local governments are no longer waiting for Federal politicians to lead. If we act now we may have a chance and its do-able!

How it will be delivered

I intend to deliver the petition to the Marion Council at a monthly meeting hopefully during a motion to declare the Climate Emergency.

Reasons for signing

  • the climate needs us!
  • Climate change needs action
  • We need all councils and government to get on board. There is a climate emergency!

Today I will be meeting with Councillor Bruce Hull to see if we can push through a motion for the council to Declare a Climate Emergency as quickly as possible. With the recent bushfires in the Adelaide region it only makes sense. We've received amazing traction with the petition in the last few days so please help me keep up the momentum by sharing with friends and family! This is just the start of the push for action on climate and it's so great to have you here. More updates to come...
