Petition calling for urgent climate change solutions

Please sign our petition calling for urgent climate change solutions in response to bushfire crisis

 

CCL Australia has started this petition calling for climate action and the implementation of a carbon fee and dividend as represented in the Australian Carbon Dividend Plan.

Most people recognise that the horrific bushfires devastating large sections of Australia are aggravated by climate change. Denial and misinformation have caused an impasse in climate policy over the past decade and cannot be allowed to continue. We welcome the acknowledgement by government and others that urgent action is required.

The petition calls for measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and to net zero by 2050 in line with the IPCC Report on 1.5°C,  (see that ambition superimposed on the governments own emissions forecast graph below).

Please share this petition as widely as possible. Here’s the link for you to sign and/or share:  http://chng.it/DwSVCbshLJ
It’s very easy to cut and paste this into facebook, twitter, or wherever you want to spread the word. Let’s see how many people we can get to sign.
