Emily Sharp commented on Fax Bill Shorten to Stop Adani! 2018-10-26 17:04:42 +1100Dear Mr Shorten,
Climate policy is a priority for so many voters of all ages. We need to have our Labour Party at the forefront of this issue. There are huge numbers of people working day and night to prevent Adani from opening their proposed coal mine. Unfortunately a lot of efforts are lost if the Government is not involved. Will the Labour Party pledge to not open any new coal mines? The future of your voters depend on it. We cannot afford more drought as it is and we cannot afford anymore coal powered electricity. We have so much potential and cheaper alternatives in renewable energy. Coal is as outdated as fax machines.
In the lead-up to a Federal election, we're annoying the heck out of our politicians until they commit to stopping Adani and new coal mines.
You know what's as outdated as coal? Fax machines!
Add your message and we'll fax it - with hundreds of others - to Bill Shorten's office. Heaps annoying, and a surefire way to get our point across!
Your message can be as short or long as you like. Here are a couple of examples:
"Dear Mr Shorten, I wanted to express my concern over the Adani Carmichael mine project. In 2018, we cannot afford to open any new coal mines if we want to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Coal power is even more outdated than using a fax machine - and it's time to supercharge renewable energy. Will your party commit to a position against new coal mines?"
"Dear Mr Shorten, as a young person thinking about my future, I am writing to express my strong opposition to the Adani coal mine - and any new coal mines in the Galilee Basin, which would wreck our chances of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees for a safe climate future. Like fax machines, coal is outdated technology and we don't need it when people right across the world are switching to renewables. I hope your party will commit to a position of no new coal."Add Fax
