In Moreland we are asking our Federal MP to help #stopAdani

What every Federal MP needs: concerned citizens lobbying them on climate


A little friendly protest will take place outside the electorate office for Wills MP, Peter Khalil
When: Friday 17 March at 1.30pm at 3 Munro St, Coburg.
Join us for a while if you are in the local area.

We think all our Federal MPs and Senators should be working to stop the Adani Carmichael coal mine from going ahead.

Peter Khalil has already signed the Climate Emergency declaration and is making climate change one of his 6 focus areas.

The Carmichaeol coal mine is a huge carbon bomb. Once built it will lead to coal extraction, transport to the coast, across the Great Barrier Reef, to coal plants across Asia adding to greenhouses gases and climate change. If it goes ahead it would effectively counter any emissions reduction we make with renewables or energy efficiency or waste reduction.

Shining a light in Melbourne on Reef not Coal

Reef not Coal protest at Federation Square

Reef not Coal protest at Federation Square

Last night I ventured to Federation Square. I had heard that Nemo and Dory were in town.

The Climate Guardian angels were also there poignantly making a statement with a piece of the redline ribbon from Paris COP21 last year. The redline derives from diplomatic symbolism for a boundary or limit which should not be crossed. No new coal mines or other fossil fuels is one such boundary for a safe climate, backed up by research by McGlade and Ekins (2015) (See Unburnable carbon: why we need to leave fossil fuels in the ground). Two of the Angels present are from our Climate Action Moreland group.

Seems the East Australian current is warmer and going further south. The Tasman sea has warmed by over 2 degrees C in the last 70 years – it’s a global sea surface temperature hotspot. That’s climate change for you.

Moreland climate activists join protest over Carmichael Coal Mine

By Bron Plarre

When the Minister for Environment, Greg Hunt, re-approved the Carmichael Coal Mega-Mine in the Galilee Basin Queensland, CAM members together with all manner of climate activist groups took to Hunt’s office in Hastings on October 16 to voice their outrage.

The Climate Guardians on the day after Hunt’s announcement.

The Climate Guardians co-convenor Dr Liz Conor said: “to be actually expanding the Australian coal export industry now is beyond irresponsible, it’s staggeringly negligent.”

Two weeks later, on October 30, Direct Action Melbourne (DAM) made the point that coal mining of such magnitude is unconscionable and completely incompatible with protecting our ever more degraded ecology and food producing land, let alone with the embodied carbon emissions associated with a project of that size – 40km long open cut mine producing 60 million tonnes per year.

DAM members role-played fat-cat wealthy billionaires, coal miners, fishes of the reef. They locked-on in Hunt’s office for most of the day, triggering federal police attendance, and renamed Hunt Minister AGAINST the Environment and Minister for COAL.

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