Firefighters are now demanding real climate action!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

“We want to see less people losing their homes in bushfires, not more. Real climate action means:

- An end to the billions in fossil fuel subsidies
- An end to the billions in "compensation" polluters get via the carbon price
- A stop to the expansion of our coal and gas mining and exports
- Starting the transition to 100% renewable energy”
