Andrea Bunting: Letters to the Editor, The Age

Hazelwood closure equates to the average cost of upgrading to an energy efficient light globe.

Our member Andrea Bunting had a letter published in the Age last week (December 15) which brought some perspective to all the debate about how much the closure of Hazelwood would mean to the regular person.

The figure of $78 per year, on average, added to household electricity bills, has been bandied about.

Ms Bunting points out this is about the saving you get when she upgraded a bulb in a security light from incandescent to a more energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulb, or switching of appliances around the house at the power point when not used.

Australia scores Fossil awards at COP22

CAMoreland member John Englart accepts Fossil Of The Day award at COP22

CAMoreland member John Englart accepts Fossil Of The Day award at COP22

The second week of COP22 in Marrakech Australia received a Fossil of the Day award for comments that Josh Frydenberg made, and also shared a fossil as one of the countries expanding fossil fuel production that is incongruent with meeting the temperature targets enshrined in the Paris Agreement.

This was a funny UN climate conference: for 3 days there were no nominations at all, whether this is due to poor intelligence or countries simply getting on with the tasks at hand and negotiating in good faith.

Climate Action Moreland activist to attend UN Paris Climate Talks with CANA

20150420-morelandleader-eco-bloggers-report-from-Paris-image
These are extraordinary times with enormous changes in society required to reduce emissions to mitigate climate change in the future and also adapt to the rising temperatures, sea levels and extreme weather events already occurring now and in the pipeline due to the enormous inertia in the climate system. One of our members, John Englart, will be travelling to Paris with his teenage daughter, to attend the United Nations Paris climate conference, known as the 21st Conference of the Parties or more simply as COP21.

There will be huge protests in Paris on the same weekend we march in Melbourne and in cities around the world, and a further Paris mobilization protest on December 12 immediately after the conference, no matter the result of negotiations.

We have seen too little results and many failures from 21 years of diplomatic process. Free Trade talks proceed and are often concluded with great rapidity by comparison. Free trade that primarily benefits corporate wealth has been given far more importance from our politicians than a safe climate that benefits everyone and particularly future generations.

John and Tarryn will be in Paris to document and report from the streets and civil society events.

But more than this. John Englart will join the Climate Action Network Australia (CANA) NGO official delegation to the conference to observe proceedings. He will have access to main conference plenaries and walk the same corridors as world leaders and diplomats. He will be reporting and posting to his own blog, to the nofibs website, on his own twitter account (@takvera) and will even use Climate Action Moreland’s twitter account (@camoreland) to post occasional updates, and sending updates to social communities on Google Plus and Australian and international Facebook groups he is a member of.
