More climate ambition and Stop Adani a clear message from Wills Climate Forum to Mark Butler and Peter Khalil

Wills Climate Forum

Wills Labor MP Peter Khalil finally was able to organise a climate forum for his electorate centred on the City of Moreland, with shadow minister for climate and energy Mark Butler MP attending.

It was clear from the audience questions that although Labor is on the right track with climate policy, many citizens of Moreland think more ambition is needed given the climate crisis and the need for climate emergency planning. This was made clear by the most recent science in the IPCC 1.5C report published in October 2018. Most also want to see a clear statement and commitment to stop the Adani mine, and in fact any new coal or gas projects.

Call to end logging in Victorian Forests by Indigenous nations #Voteforests

Sovereign indigenous clans ifrom Taungurong, Wurundjeri and Gunai Kurnai statement on sovereignty, land and forests

Aboriginal clans and families from the Taungurong, Wurundjeri and Gunai Kurnai peoples read a statement on sovereignty, land use and forests which called for a moratorium on the logging of Victorian forests by the Victorian Government.

The statement was met with a standing ovation from the packed crowd in the Brunswick Town Hall who had come to hear and discuss the Future of Victoria’s Forests in an event organised by Brunswick Friends of the forests.

Questions on climate action raised at Wills Budget Forum

Peter Khalil MP with Shadow Assistant Treasurer Andrew Leigh MP at the Wills Budget 2018 forum


A few members of Climate Action Moreland attended Peter Khalil’s budget forum with guest speaker Andrew Leigh (Shadow Assistant Treasurer and a former Economics Professor at Australian National University).

There were a few questions on climate change, and Labor’s climate policy, raised in this wide ranging forum. And, no, we didn’t stack the audience to ask questions on climate. Climate action is one of the issues that does have a consistent high profile and is of great concern to many citizens of Moreland.

Here is the report by Climate Action Moreland convenor John Englart, and his specific question on the need to address the growing transport climate emissions through infrastructure funding.
