Whether you believe in climate science, are confused or don’t believe, do not get caught in the net of apathy. When the civil rights movement happened in the US people did not debate the nature of freedom, they just agreed people should be free. Climate change is a symbol of caring about the earth, rejecting a society where selfishness is the core and where a powerful minority can distort a debate backed by an enormous majority. Whether the climate is changing or not - do you believe we are damaging the earth significantly? Do you believe that the earth is incredible and worth saving? Do you believe in a democracy where the powerful few cannot control the many? Do you believe that community is more important than selfishness? Then join me next Sunday at 11am. https://www.getup.org.au/get_togethers/climate-catchup

I would like to see more specific strategic planning being done regarding how to get the business community on board with this. That's the only way substantial change is going to be happening in this country, when it is in the business community's best interests to support the changes required. Take a look here for good examples reported by Oxfam: http://www.oxfamamerica.org/press/pressreleases/companies-push-white-house-to-follow-through-on-climate-action-plan
