Today is Day 1 of the New Climate Era – a whole new reality for humankind.

Welcome to the new climate era, where the earth is never again like it was for the rest of human existence; where our very existence depends on changing our economies and lifestyles to become compatible with the sensitive and finite nature of life on earth.

We’ve now reached the point of no return in regards to preventing catastrophic climate change.

We must act urgently and with a social determination not seen since the immediate period post World War II, when social progress came in leaps and bounds around the globe and nations received self determination.

That was a time where the all consuming power of kings, queens, empires and oligarchs was repeatedly challenged and defeated in the name of a necessary progress.

Now it’s our turn.

September 21 – People’s Climate Mobilisation (Perth)

People's Climate Mobilisation - Perth, September 21, 2014

Let’s make this an event to be remembered. It’s time for us to step up and commit to taking actions which create and protect the safe climate future we all need.

On September 21 there will be actions we can take on the day, actions we can take in our personal lives and things we can begin doing together.

We need to use ALL our political, financial and collective power in order to secure the urgent action necessary for a safe climate future.

Promoting this event is a great vehicle for those conversations and it’s also far more effective than just mass-clicking invite button.

So let’s start having those conversations and inviting people along!

Peoples Climate Mobilisation – September 21

Peoples Climate Mobilisation, September 21, 2014

Tonight I was at a meeting to organise an event here in Perth as part of a global action to coincide with the UN Climate Summit in New York on September 21.

The message for the event is simple and clear, we want a safe climate future. 

To achieve this, we call for:
1) Tony Abbott to put real climate action on the G20 agenda.
2) A strong Renewable Energy Target and timeline for 100% Renewable Energy.
3) No new coal or gas projects. 

Find out more about the Perth event here.

Also keep your eyes on the #PeoplesClimate and #WorthSaving tags across social media, as they will be used extensively by this campaign.
