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.

On Wednesday a delegation of 5 members of Climate Action Moreland met with our Federal MP for Wills: Peter Khalil. Peter was elected in 2016 in a tight race against Greens candidate Samantha Ratnam to replace retiring Labor MP Kelvin Thomson. Kelvin had a record of being a champion in both the ALP caucus and in government for strong climate action. We are hoping Peter Khalil will continue this leadership record on climate change.

Wills MP Peter Khalil makes maiden speech but fails to mention ARENA cuts

20160916-peter-khalilmp01

On Monday September 12 Wills MP Peter Khalil made his maiden speech in the House of Representatives, in which he prefaced: “This speech is for everyone who cares about compassionate policies for asylum seekers and refugees, the immense value to our nation of the arts and multiculturalism, equality before the law for all and the impact of climate change on our environment.”

He referenced climate change twice briefly in his speech:

“Wills has a commitment to the Environment. Residents have lead the way on climate change action with one of the fastest rates of home and business adoption of solar panels. In the suburbs of Fawkner and Glenroy pensioners have roofs covered in solar panels because it makes environmental and economic sense.”

“I believe in tackling climate change for our, and future generations, sustainable living, and funding for infrastructure and public transport.”
