This day of action coincides with UN talks and rallies all around the world.
Everyday Australians are getting active and local groups are forming across Australia to ask governments to act to stop global warming. Join or start a group now! A local Canberran group already exists- the climate Recovery Coalition (CRC). It meets fortnightly to plan activities and is coordinated by the Conservation Council CCSERAC. To find out about the CRC and what else you can do visit: www.climatemovement.org.au.

I also encourage everyone to see The Inconvenient Truth. An Al Gore film about climate change. It will shock you and hopefully make you act to reduce your impact on this fragile earth. If you send the movie ticket stubs away apparently Al Gore will give the money back to show he wasn’t making the film for money. My sister knows the details so e-mail me if you want and I’ll get the details.
Remember- everyone can make a difference. For more infor about the movie and how you can help visit:
Pass this on to all your friends. This is our world we are destroying- we can’t ignore it any longer. Stand up and fight climate change and influence government and industry to make positive changes to save our planet
