Our planet earth is precious and can’t be replaced, however we are in the middle of a climate emergency due to our ongoing dependence on fossil fuels. 

The Australian government can show that they agree by treating the climate emergency for what it is - a crisis, and take urgent action to phase out fossil fuels. A just transition is required, supporting the coal and gas workers during the phase out. However the government will not act, even to the detriment of our Pacific neighbours, and instead aim to open more coal mines and frack the NT and Pilliga, NSW. This is unconscionable considering the existential crisis the world faces. 

We are part of the Commonwealth under Her Majesty the Queen. The UK government and Canada have declared Climate Emergency - and so must Australia. If the royal family including the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry declare a climate emergency then other countries in the Commonwealth would be compelled to follow suit.
