Carlo Carli taking action on climate change?

December 23, 2009 at 10:43 am Leave a comment

Carlo Carli’s glossy brochure to households in Brunswick requesting that we join him to ‘take action on climate change’ is just the first we can expect as Labour tries to paint itself green in the lead up to the State election in November.

Carlo wants us to ask the Greens to vote for the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, but rightly they refuse to do so because CPRS locks in decades of failure on climate change. The government’s own modelling shows that if the CPRS is passed Australia’s emissions won’t drop until 2035, and then not enough to stop runaway climate change.  The Victorian government, of which Carlo is a member, is one of the most pro-coal in the country, constantly scuttling renewable energy initiatives and looking for new opportunities to expand the coal industry in Victoria.

It’s going to take more than glossy brochures to turn around Labour’s woeful record on climate action at both the State and Federal level. With my local group Climate Action Moreland I’m intending to campaign against Labour’s pro-coal, do-nothing CPRS and for policies that support not discourage the growth of renewable energy.
