Local communities are leading the way in showing government how to take meaningful steps to address climate change. We see that in over 1.2 million households across Australia that have installed solar PV, and the many more who have installed solar hot water systems, or who have found ways to implement energy efficiency. Help to continue to drive the changes we need from a grassroots level:

When: 7pm Thursday 7 August 2014
Where: Coburg Concert Hall at the Coburg Town Hall, 90 Bell St, Coburg
RSVP: Join our event page on Facebook to give us some idea of numbers attending
Resources: Empowering Moreland

Master of Ceremonies for the night will be Rod Quantock. Speakers from Climate Action Moreland and 350.org Further details still to be confirmed.

Bring your own ideas, bring your enthusiasm and bring a friend!

Here in Moreland we are actually pretty effective with climate education events and in forums to discuss climate policies such as the forum prior to the Federal Election September 2013.

On the Federal level Carbon pricing has now been abolished. Much of the supportive framework for addressing climate mitigation such as funding clean energy and the Renewable Energy Target is under sustained attack by an ideologically driven Federal government that pays the faintest acknowledgement of climate science while running a wrecking ball through scientific research programs and climate science education. The evening is a chance to discuss climate change policy in the context of the upcoming State election on November 14.

Climate Action Moreland and 350.org have also been working together on a divestment campaign this year. The meeting will be an opportunity to officially launch the campaign for the City of Moreland to move ratepayer money away from banks which lend to fossil fuel projects – something all Moreland residents can get behind.

Moreland Council has also just approved funding for LED lighting upgrade and closed circuit TV security system for Brunswick taking this money out of footpaths, then transferred $100,000 from the $525,000 Carbon Management Strategy budget to maintain the footpath maintenance budget. We think this is a retrograde step that demeans and degrades the importance of Council’s long term policies and funding for carbon neutrality and climate mitigation.

This is the current C02 in our atmosphere. We need to get it below 350 for a safe climate.
