Support carbon tax opportunities. Reject Abbott’s climate change antics.

March 23, 2011

 Write letter to the Editors. Get on talk back radio.

Contact details for letters to the editor & talk back radio are below.

Points you might like to consider in your letter:

– Climate scientists say human activity is the major cause of global warming,

– We face a climate emergency with ever increasing extreme weather events and need a plan to take us to a safe climate,
– A price on carbon will… reduce coal and oil usage and therefore emissions that are causing the planet to heat up,
– Our politicians must support a high price on carbon and other strong measures. This could be a big step forward for Australia and create great opportunities for economic development and thousands of new jobs,
– Ordinary Australians should receive compensation for a price on carbon depending on their financial circumstances,
– Tony Abbott’s confusion on climate change and flip-flops on a price on carbon creates industry and community uncertainty.

Remember keep it short and to the point – if it’s less than 150 words, it’s far more likely to be published! Also make sure you put your contact details into your email – they will not be published but they are vital to allow the paper contact you and confirm your letter.
