How to support the Global climate strike on Friday September 25 here in Moreland?

We are still in stage 4 pandemic lockdown in Melbourne, only able to leave home for 4 valid reasons, including exercise within a 5 kilometre radius of our home.

School Strike 4 Climate highlighted that 600+ Climate events taking place around Australia on September 25 in the biggest-ever national action against gas.

Neighbours United for Climate Action (Facebook) organised a location near Coburg Lake with stuffed animals and signs and urged people on their allowed exercise time to visit the site and take photos and post to social media.

 
 
 
Brunswick MP, Tim Read, organised a zoom meeting with Tim Forcey on The Problem With Gas Series: What Governments Should Be Doing. Tim Forcey is an energy expert with 35 years experience who initiated the My Efficient Electric Home Facebook group with over 20,000 members.

Pandemic disruption should cause us to reassess aviation policies and airport expansion

Virgin Airlines goes into volubntary administration due to Pandemic


The Management of Virgin Airlines has put the company into administration, due to the impact of the pandemic in reducing need for essential travel, and the huge debt the airline has accumulated. Most Virgin planes are presently sitting at airports, huge stranded assets.

Labort MP for Wills, Peter Khalil, has said in a Facebook Post Labor has been calling on the Morrison Government to Save Virgin. But is this the wisest move given the future for passenger aviation demand in a pandemic with no assurances of a vaccine available and the level of greenhouse gas emissions and climate impact by aviation?

Virgin Airlines is presently owned by Etihad Airways (20.94%), Singapore Airlines (20.09%), Nanshan Group (19.98%), HNA Group (19.82%), Virgin Group (10.42%). Bailing out Virgin is bailing out foreign corporations, some of these owned by other nations.
