I bet you’re sick of hearing all the spin about climate change. We are too.

Shock jocks on soap boxes. Government doublespeak. Big polluting companies funding ad campaigns and sweet-talking politicians at expensive dinners.

It doesn’t stop. And this year, with a global climate meeting in Paris, there will be more spin than ever.

But 2015 feels different. There’s new momentum. Charged by people power, countries around the world are finally taking steps to tackle climate change.

Just last year 51,720 amazing people took action with ACF on climate change to hold the government and big polluters to account. Thanks for being one of them.

We have a strong campaign planned for Paris and beyond. Stay tuned – we’re hosting events around the country to discuss this year’s strategy on how together, we can turn this around.

Will you share this graphic on social media to start spreading the word?

In Paris in November, world leaders will meet to make decisions about cutting pollution and tackling climate change. Each and every country must take action.

But right now, the Abbott government is taking us backwards. In just one year, Australia has:

  • Slid from 11th to 39th for clean energy investment
  • Killed the law that made polluters pay
  • Tried to take climate change off the global G20 agenda

We want a government that stands up for our communities, not one that is the puppet of the big polluting companies.

This year, we’ll show our politicians we want a clean and safe – not dirty and dangerous – energy future. And we’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen. Together, with you and hundreds of thousands of other Australians, our voice can be louder and more powerful than any ad campaign.

We’ll organise in our towns, suburbs, workplaces, schools and communities to work together to build the pressure for politicians to put our communities and our future first.

We’ll demonstrate that even if our political decision makers aren’t ready to lead, we are. And we expect that leadership from the people we vote for.

It’s time for action.
