25th August – Notes from the COAL face

Some items from Yesterdays meeting; From Miriam’s Minutes.

Election feedback

  • Overall swing to Greens, many people disgruntled about lack of action on climate change
  • Minority government may help to drive climate change policy

Feedback from events

  • Wentworth Getup! Forum went really well.  Standing room only.  The audience came up with questions, so Greg didn’t ask any of ours.
  • Walk Against Warming was good mood but not a large crowd in an election year.  Maybe a tired strategy now.  But clearly a need for ongoing mass presentation of people to keep in the public consciousness.  Also needs to be at a politically relevant time, not just once a year by default.
  • Beyond Zero Emissions, Zero Carbon Australia launch.  Very well attended.  Greg was able to meet the speakers.
