Moreland residents are calling for real action on climate change now that the government’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme has failed.

‘We’ve been campaigning all year against the CPRS because we think its too weak and won’t stop climate change. Now the Liberal party have voted against it, Labour needs to step up with a better option,’ said Climate Action Moreland spokesperson Ellen Roberts.

‘We’ve been talking to the people of Moreland and we’ve found there is strong support in here for real action on climate change.

‘The CPRS however doesn’t count as real action. One of the world’s leading climate scientists, James Hansen, has condemned Labour’s 5% emissions reduction target as resulting in ‘the destruction of planet’ if adopted globally. Labour has quietly announced that it will take the amended CPRS, with its expanded unconditional hand outs to polluters and unlimited capacity for offsetting, to the next election.’

‘As an alternative to emissions trading, Climate Action Moreland is calling for a switch to renewable energy, and more investment in public transport. These are clear and effective policy options that don’t rely on complex and unjust systems like emissions trading.’
