Perth special event! “An Evening with the IPCC in Perth”, Thursday 21st March 7 – 9pm. A public event hosted by Citizens’ Climate Lobby at which 3 authors/contributors to IPCC 1.5°C report will give presentations followed by Q&A. South Perth Community Centre.
Lobbying update! In our December blog post and newsletter we reported that Centre Alliance MP, Rebekha Sharkie, had announced in a speech in the House of Representatives that she and Independent MP, Dr Kerryn Phelps would co-chair a Parliamentary Friends of Climate Action (PFOCA) group. Read it here. CCL has been advocating such a group as a safe forum for constructive dialogue on climate solutions for some time. We’ve known for a while there was support from individual politicians fairly widely across the political spectrum for this concept. Rebekha Sharkie said in a media statement that another 27 Federal MPs have signed up for the group! We have yet to hear who but look forward to a formal launch in coming weeks.
