We need climate action, not just thoughts and prayers.
The mining and burning of coal and gas is fuelling dangerous climate change and supercharging deadly bushfires which are devastating people’s health, safety, homes and work. Without action to turn this around, it will only get worse, yet our Government is nowhere to be seen. All they have to offer are their thoughts, prayers, and more coal and gas.
Scientists, indigenous leaders and fire chiefs repeatedly warned our government that this would happen, but their warnings have been ignored. To tackle this spiralling crisis, we need increased support for Indigenous land management and the Rural Fire Service and we need real and urgent climate action.
