Maddie Diamond commented on Fax Bill Shorten to Stop Adani! 2018-10-25 07:53:32 +1100Dear Mr Shorten,
I’m a 21 year old studying sustainability, and every day I learn more and more about climate change and the impact it’s going to have on my future. Everyone my age that I’ve spoken to about this is seriously concerned, and some are even suffering really bad anxiety because they’re scared of the future.
I emplore you to listen to science and throw Australia headlong into a mission for renewables!
We don’t have time to um and ah about climate change anymore. We all know it’s happening and action must be taken now.
Have a great day.
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You know what's as outdated as coal?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 Coal power is even more outdated than using a fax machine - and it's time to supercharge renewable energy.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 Like fax machines, coal is outdated technology and we don't need it when people right across the world are switching to renewables.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
Thanks for signing the petition! There’s only 3 weeks left to influence the major parties to come out against the coal mine. That’s 3 weeks of making it an issue that’s impossible to ignore.
Volunteers across the state will have thousands of conversations in key electorates, make sure every young person is enrolled to vote, chase politicians around asking them the hard questions, and hold actions at MP offices demanding they do the right thing for our climate.
But Adani know this election is important for them too. They’ll spend millions on advertising campaigns and political donations. Their friends in the Federal Government will be noisy about their love for coal, but we have to be louder.
We will target any politician who sides with Adani over our future. Together we will make it politically impossible to support this mine.
