Send a Christmas card to your MP and the PM!
Grab a Christmas card (or get your kids to make one) and mail it off to your local MP and/or to the PM with a personal message demanding they take the climate crisis seriously and act with urgency to protect our kids' future. If you're stumped on what to write here is some text:
Dear MP (or PM),
All I want for Christmas is a safe climate future for my kids.
With Australia burning at an unprecedented rate and drought worsening, I am very worried about my children's future.
We need you to take urgent action to stop climate change worsening for the sake of our kids.
[INSERT LOCAL CONCERN OR ISSUE eg bushfire smoke and your kids' health]
I ask that you take the following action to address the climate crisis:
1. Declare a National Climate Emergency
2. Commit to net zero emissions and 100% renewable energy by 2030.
3. Allow no new fossil fuel projects to proceed, including stopping the Adani coal mine.
4. Prioritise a smooth and fair transition for all workers and communities impacted by the climate crisis, including fossil fuel industry communities and indigenous communities.
Yours Sincerely ...
Send a card to your local MP, or if you like, you can write to the PM and the Minister for Emissions Reduction:
The Hon Scott Morrison MP
CANBERRA ACT 2600
The Hon Angus Taylor MP
Minister for Emissions Reduction
Po Box 21
Camden NSW 2570
Here's a brilliant example from one of our members in Toowoomba - parents from Toowoomba sent of 47 Christmas cards to the PM and Angus Taylor the other day!
