Climate Change: What Should the Federal Government Be Doing?

Coburg Concert Hall, 90 Bell St (rear of the Coburg Town Hall).
This is a free event
The Moreland Climate Group invites you to a community debate and discussion featuring Kelvin Thomson, MP for Wills and David Spratt, Moreland resident and co-author of Climate Code Red: the Case for Emergency Action.
2009 will be a crucial year for the planet. Scientific consensus is building about the speed and severity of climate impacts, but the climate talks in Copenhagen seem in danger of failing to reach political agreement on emissions cuts necessary to avert climate disaster. The Australian government has provided its program about the best way forward, but this has met with opposition from environmentalists, social justice groups and businesses alike.
In this context, community concern and action is crucial. This forum presents an opportunity to hear latest climate science, learn about the differing views of the climate movement and the government, and join with other community members in presenting your views to Kelvin Thomson.
Kelvin Thomson has recently made recommendations to the ALP government on climate policy is his capacity as chair of the treaties committee. David Spratt is a well known commentator on climate science and the author of Climate Code Red.
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
