Locals ‘sign up’ for #ClimateActionNow as election looms

People in the Armidale and New England area are joining with the Together We Can movement and ‘signing up’ with others all over Australia to call for much stronger action on reducing Australia’s emissions – and they have the signs to show it.

The sign you’ll see everywhere: pictured are Rob Nabben , Garry Slocombe, Nikki Rochford, Jodi Jardine, Annette Kilarr and Bea Bleile.

Yellow signs calling for ‘Climate Action now!’ are already starting to appear all over New England on homes and fences to demonstrate that New Englanders want bold action on climate.

‘The recent floods and tornado, and the drought and fires not long ago, are devastating indicators of the increasing volatility of our climate in response to the heating caused by greenhouse emissions,’ said Annette Kilarr from Climate Action Armidale (CAA).

‘The actions proposed by the Federal Government, including net zero by 2050, are far less than what is needed to secure a safe and viable future for our children. Australia must get to net zero emissions by 2035, starting this decade, and accelerate efforts to shift away from coal and gas to a fully renewable-powered economy to prevent catastrophe.  The recently proposed Federal Budget did nothing to address the Coalition government’s long standing failure on climate.

‘So from now on, our State and Federal MPs are going to see Climate Action Now signs wherever they go in New England – and they can have no doubt prior to the election that this is an issue they have to act on much more strongly and that the community will hold them responsible for.

To get a sign visit the CAA stall at the Armidale Farmers’ Market on Sunday April 10th or fill out this form right now:
