We have 10 yrs to change before our Earth passes a point of no return - we need to act now

The world is rolling towards a point of no return. For decades we have known about climate change and the potential devastating effects it can have.

Australia has just had 9 out of 10 of the hottest years on record - plagued by fire, droughts, floods to name just a few. 

The evidence is right before us and if we continue to turn away and ignore this, our children will not know the world as we do today.

Whole cities will be wiped out by floods as the ice caps continue to melt, millions of people will starve as farmers will struggle to grow crops, the weather will continue to become more and more wild - floods, fires, droughts, heatwaves - more and more pain.

The experts have agreed that we need to keep global warming to 1.5 to 2 degrees for our world to stay relatively liveable in but to achieve that we need to cut our emissions by 60% in the next 10 years and be zero emissions by 2050. At present we are heading for a warming of 3.5 degrees by 2100 and our children's future is in jeopardy.

Australia should be leading by example. If people understood the severe ramifications of climate change and the risk it poses to the earth and our survival on it I believe everyone would get behind the change. 

If we go past this point of no return and do not make the necessary changes then it will be too late and we will have sealed our fate for not just our future but for generations to come.

The time to act is now - i want to urge the Prime Minister to please educate every Australian on the severe threat we are facing. We are the first generation who understands the true severity of climate change and unfortunately we are the last who can do anything about it.

To not act is criminal & we owe it to the planet and to our children to act now. This issue needs to take priority, centre stage and all resources need to be given to it to reduce Australia's emissions to zero by 2050 & the government needs to be monitoring this and hitting targets monthly to ensure this actually happens.

I am asking all Australian's to get behind me so we can show the Prime Minister that we all want this change before its too late
