Hi everyone

It has been an amazing day for our new citizen-funded Climate Council!

Because of people like you, like us, The Climate Council has already raised $250,000 in less than 24 hours – half way to its goal of $500,000 for the week. You can see the update and message of thanks from The Climate Council here: http://youtu.be/M5_Sd17Tkkk and check out the website here http://www.climatecouncil.org.au/.

The support has been truly inspiring! In addition to the 4,300 of you who have signed this petition, The Climate Council now has almost 20,000 likes on Facebook, 4,154 followers on Twitter, was trending on Twitter this morning, had its twitter account suspended because it grew so fast, had their site crash because of so much traffic, and has been generating a huge amount of media interest all day!

I encourage all of you, having signed our petition here, to head over to The Climate Council’s website, if you haven’t already, and both sign up as a supporter, and donate some cash.

For those of you who want to contribute skills or time, you can go here and register your interest: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1nqhDf-Yj_2xoqf2wYSiG0Koz5OfGpVRsk7rb2e68sXg/viewform?edit_requested=true

I’ve had quite a few emails from people about wanting to make monthly and tax deductible contributions to The Climate Council – what I have done is made a donation today, through the website, with an expectation that once they have their initial funding and are up and running, The Climate Council will let us know how to set up ongoing monthly contributions. They may not be able to offer tax deductibility – again, that will have to be something they explore after getting themselves re-established with our help.

Finally, amidst a sea of media today (I’ve done a few radio interviews, hopefully doing our collective voices justice), we did get a shout out in a Guardian Australia article here: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/sep/24/climate-council-faces-titanic-struggle?CMP=soc_567.

Thank you all for your support!


ps some of you have been asking – I have no affiliation or role with The Climate Council.

You received this email because you signed the petition ‘We’ve done it! Your ‘citizen-funded Climate Commission’ = the new Climate Council!’.
