Moreland Council: Walk the talk on Adani and Council procurement policy

Climate Action Moreland have teamed up with Stop Adani Moreland for a campaign for Moreland City Councillors to revisit the decision of October 2019 on putting in place an amendment to Council procurement policy and companies that sign contracts to build the Adani coal mine in Central Queensland.

Moreland Council passed a general resolution opposing the Adani mine in 2017. Council also declared a climate emergency in 2018. Council need to ensure proper governance and include the implementation of these decisions in Council procurement policy. Please sign the online petition or the paper version being circulated.

Council has made the motherhood statements, they now need to carry through on governance to include action as part Council day to day operations with regard to procurement.

Climate Emergency Petition

Mobilising public and private resources to restore
a safe climate for the common good

In February 2016, global temperatures spiked to well over 1.5°C above pre-industrial times, just weeks after the Paris resolution aimed at not exceeding that benchmark. (See: Climate Reality Check)

Ask Australian parliaments and local councils to
declare a climate emergency and mobilise resources
to restore a safe climate

“All of us are fully aware how wrong it is to falsely yell ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theatre. But we are also aware of how wrong it is to sit silently while a fire begins to spread…” Richard Alley, Professor of Geosciences at Pennsylvania State University

Humans are like frogs in a saucepan of water being gradually heated to boiling. Each month brings us more frightening news on the effects of global warming, but because the changes are gradual, there’s never a clear signal that it’s time to step up to stronger action.

Let’s use the alarming spike in global temperatures during February 2016 and the bleaching of the Reef as the impetus to insist our leaders stop playing political games on climate and stand together to draw a line in the sand. Australian Parliament must declare a climate emergency. It’s the first step in mobilising government and community resources and funds that are not normally available. Declaring a state of emergency inspires the public to act for the common good.

Australians are great at pitching in to help in an emergency. In the Queensland floods of 2011, three-quarters of the council areas were declared disaster zones. Government funds were made available and a large workforce was mobilised to deal with the emergency. More than 55,000 volunteers registered to help clean up the streets of Brisbane. All over Australia kind-hearted individuals and community groups sent supplies and raised emergency funds.

This petition is a first step in a growing campaign by grassroots climate action groups to pressure our political leaders to step up and do what is needed to address the climate crisis. It is part of a PetitionStorm and the total includes signatures on other forms of the petition. Read more at http://www.climatesafety.net
