Trevor A Scott, Central Vic Climate Action
A number of bleaching events between 1998 and 2018 have left much of our Great Barrier Reef without any living coral or fish.
Now in the summer just gone, the hottest temperatures on record have left thousands of fish dead in the Murray Darling Basin, the largest ever flood in Townsville North Queensland; and bushfires burning out of control in both Tasmania and SW Victoria.
As individuals we feel powerless to deal with something as big as the changes in the climate that we see all around us. But do not despair, there are some things that you can do:
– This coming Friday March 15, school children are striking because they want our government to take meaningful action on Climate Change. The children have asked for support from young and old. Please join them at 12pm outside the Old Treasury Building, Spring Street, Melbourne.
– If you are a worker, join the school strike, and tell your boss why you are doing so.
– If you are over 18, at the coming federal election, be sure to vote for a party that will do its best to ensure that in the future we have a safe climate.
