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

  • as a former resident of Boothby for 16 years, I would hope they would recognise the seriousness of all things climate
  • It's time those in authority accepted the science. City of Marion blatantly flaunts the impending climate catastrophe by allowing the wholesale destruction of every living thing developers clear from blocks for their projects. Shame on City of Marion for allowing this. It's time to take a hard long look at their policies that currently support the blatant ignorance of the climate emergency that is on our doorstep - right now.
