Greetings Premier Ballieu
I read with great sadness at the decision by your government to scrap the State carbon reduction target. Victoria is one of the greatest polluting regions per capita on the planet. And we need to be moving forward not backwards on solutions for climate change.
I am part of a number of active organisations in Melbourne’s West, working hard to create sustainable, localised food, energy and clothing options for our community. Not only is our work making a major difference to the lives of people involved in our activities, but has a ripple effect across our whole community as more people grow their own food, get out of their cars and onto buses and bikes and invest their money on locally made items.
It is so inspiring to be part of a movement of people working to make the world a better place.
So it is even more disappointing to read about the head in the sand attitude your government is taking towards sustainable policy, especially in relation to energy production.
I urge you to:
Your government has a responsibility to take action on climate change. I want you to take action to cut pollution and support a safe climate future for my family.
