The government is not the country. Huge amounts of climate action can occur outside of what the Commonwealth government does. Cities, towns, states, territories, businesses, institutions of all kinds… all of these can take action.
In a big win for Melbourne, Australia and the entire global community, Melbourne City Councillor Cathy Oke has announced that the Future Melbourne Committee will declare a climate and biodiversity emergency.
Morrison is using the climate emergency to try to force through a range of aggressive policies that will hurt Australia and worsen climate change on the basis of a series of dishonest, unreliable and devious justifications.
