Families and farmers around the world are already being hit hard by the brutal impacts of climate change. And our Pacific neighbours are on the front line.
Last year in Paris, we reached a landmark global agreement for tackling climate change. And on 22 April, world leaders will be in New York to formally sign the Paris Agreement.
But Australia is still failing the climate leadership test and refusing to get with the program.
At the same time, our Pacific neighbours are displaying extraordinary leadership and driving real climate solutions. It’s time Australia followed their lead.
Australia has so much to gain by embracing a pollution-free, clean energy future. And so much to lose by being left behind in the dust.
It’s time to stop being part of the problem and be part of the solution. As we head towards a Federal election, a clear majority of Australians want the Government to commit to stronger action on climate change. We can create a fairer world by cutting pollution and funding solutions for the people living on the frontline of climate change.
Get behind those on the frontline of climate change. Tell our leaders that you want change.
I’m witnessing climate inaction and I want change.

In 2016 we have witnessed some forceful examples of climate change in action: Temperature records shattered; unprecedented bleaching of the reef; the devastation of Cyclone Winston ; and the havoc wrought by a super-charged El Niño.
Along with the majority of Australians, I want change. I will be voting for a party that can commit to working towards a cleaner, brighter future for all by:
Can you please tell me how you and your party will commit to taking action in line with these three key points?
