    Dear Mr Shorten,

    You and the ALP keep sending me email messages, but these will fall on deaf ears until you and the ALP come out with a clear message and guarantee that the Adani Carmichael coal mine, and associated or similar developments, WILL NOT GO AHEAD.

    This message is coming to you via a technology which is as outdated as coal – and as burning oil will soon be.

    So – please get off the fence, and prolong the life of this planet for our successors.

    Fax Bill Shorten to Stop Adani!

    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    You know what's as outdated as coal?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 Coal power is even more outdated than using a fax machine - and it's time to supercharge renewable energy.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 Like fax machines, coal is outdated technology and we don't need it when people right across the world are switching to renewables.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."
