To ensure a safe climate and a better future we need to undertake urgent action now. Our most recent bushfire disaster and recovery have given us a clear view of the future. It presents us with a clear challenge to deal with this rapidly unfolding catastrophe.
SHASA asks the Eurobodalla Shire Council to declare a climate emergency and rapidly tackle the imminent but solvable challenges ahead. To do otherwise leaves a terrible legacy for current and future generations.
Specific actions we endorse include:
- Keep carbon in the ground
- Help build a new, more equitable low-carbon economy
- Pressure federal, state and local governments into limiting emissions
We have many partner organisations taking the lead in tackling the climate crisis. Please support them. Each of the icons below are hyper linked to the organisations’ website or facebook page. Just click on the icons to find out more.
is the local branch of the Australian and worldwide 350.org organisation which works to recover a safe climate for people and for nature. A safe climate has just 350 parts per million of CO2…….not the 420ppm we have now reached. In Eurobodalla, 350.org are a a volunteer group of very concerned citizens contributing to that National and worldwide effort.
is working to expose the institutions that are financing environmentally destructive projects and help Australians hold these institutions accountable. They work with the community to prevent investment in projects that would harm the environment and drive global warming.
is an Australian climate change think tank, showing through independent research and innovative solutions how Australia can reach beyond zero emissions. They have developed carbon emission snapshots of each Shire Council across the whole of Australia. This is our most recent Eurobodalla snapshot. The website also shows comparable emissions for previous years.
is an Australian independent non-profit organisation formed to provide independent, authoritative climate change information to the Australian public. It was formed by former members of the Climate Commission after it was abolished by the Australian federal government. It is funded by donations from the public
