Walk against warming 2010 - Sunday the 15th of Aug

This years Walk Against Warming will be on Sunday the 15th of August at 11am, at King George Square in the CBD.

At one week before the election this is a chance for people of all political persuasions to come together and tell our politicians that we want action on climate change, instead of constant delay and buck passing.

The Walk will be calling for
  • A price on carbon pollution,
  • Investment in clean energy for a healthy future,
  • A commitment to reduce emissions in the life of the next parliament
  • Support for poor and vulnerable countries to tackle the impacts of climate change and invest in sustainable development
There is a famous quote from FDR, regarded as one of the greatest American presidents. Addressing reformers he said "I agree with you, I want to do it, now make me do it." I remain optimistic that many of our politicians do want to leave a liveable climate for future generations, it's just that we have to make them.

See you there.
