Climate change is hurting Australia. Last January was the hottest month on record. There were scorching heat waves of almost 50 degrees from Adelaide to Sydney. Flash flooding in Townsville. Unprecedented wildfires in Tasmania.
Polling shows that concern for climate change is at an all time high. That’s why the Federal election in May is shaping up to be the #ClimateElection.
We know fossil fuels are the biggest driver of climate change. Australia is ready to move beyond fossil fuels towards a renewable energy future.
The #ClimateElection Candidates Forum is our opportunity to hear from the different candidates of McPherson about how they plan to lead Australia beyond fossil fuels. It’s also our chance to show candidates that our community wants action.
Event co-hosted by ACF Community Burleigh Heads, Stop Adani Gold Coast, Australian Parents For Climate Action, Gecko Environment Council and AYCC Gold Coast.

The list of companies walking away from Adani’s toxic brand and climate-wrecking mega mine keeps growing. 59 companies, including 16 major insurers, have now ruled out working with Adani.
But Lloyd’s of London is still working with Adani to help the mining giant find insurance for its disastrous project.
Let’s flood the Lloyd’s office with calls now and let them know that allowing insurers to underwrite Adani’s coal mine is a risk we cannot afford!
Adani can’t build or operate their destructive coal mine and rail line without insurance.
A staff insider from US insurance giant AIG has confirmed AIG is insuring part of Adani’s mine project. Now is the time to tell AIG to insure our future, and not to renew insurance for Adani’s destructive coal mine.
On September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, the #StopAdani movement is stepping up to join the Global #ClimateStrike led by young people from the School Strike 4 Climate movement.
