Do We Need a Price on Pollution?
Come and discuss the issue in an informal setting at the New Gungahlin
Public Library Conference Room.

Speakers:
Charlotte Wood from the Australian Youth Climate Coalition
(www.aycc.org.au)
Steve O’Connor from Skeptical Science
(www.skepticalscience.com)
Also discussion led by members of SayYes Australia.
The forum will run strictly to time and half the session will be devoted to
answering questions from the audience.

Date: Monday, August 8th 2011
Place: Gungahlin Public Library Conference Room, corner of Hibberson and Gozzard Streets, Gungahlin
Time: 6 pm to 7.30pm sharp.

Many people in the community say they have not enough information about the carbon tax and its implications for Australians, for the environment and for the planet. This forum aims to discuss the details of climate change and the proposed carbon tax. Make the effort to attend and judge for yourself what impacts we all face and what we personally can do to optimise our situation.

This conference has been organised by Steve O’Connor (0401723466), Belinda Morgan Pratten (0409428902), and Trish Wilkinson (62279624) of the SayYes team.

But I thought the debate was over and the science was settled. What is this all about?

“Carbon price”? What’s that? Is Julia shying away from “tax” again?

I will come along and count how many of these committed environmentalist speakers arrive by public transport or bicycle … any flying in from interstate?
