We call on the City of Busselton to declare a climate emergency

We are calling on the City of Busselton to declare a climate emergency to ensure a future for our kids, the plants and the animals that make our home so unique.

Why is this important?

More than 60 per cent of Australians agree with the sentiment that Global warming is a serious and pressing problem. We should begin taking steps now to drastically reduce emissions. As a parent of young children, and someone who cares deeply about the environment, I ask you to consider the future we are creating for them.

I am deeply afraid that our government is more influenced by large polluting companies and by short term financial gain, than by the virtually unanimous advice of scientists who advise that we must act now to mitigate climate destruction.

We request that you declare a climate emergency. This would demonstrate a concrete commitment and willingness to stand with the community and fight to prevent the largest threat of our times.
