As it is becoming evident that climate change is one of the leading issues amongst voters this federal election, community groups have been seeking responses on environmental issues at candidates forums across Sydney.
The campaign, in which faith groups put up signs to urge an end to coal mining, was initiated by national multi-faith charity the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC).
The climate science is in.
People might not usually expect to see a sign opposing new coal mines outside a church.
Inaction on global warming is heating not only the planet, but also the mood of the residents of Sydney.
Religious leaders have asked Mr Adani to abandon coal mining in Qld and invest in renewable energy instead.
One year out from the next state election people from all parts of Sydney and NSW issued a powerful call for clean, renewable energy.
Faith communities joined a nationwide day of action on the weekend of October 7 and 8, against Adani’s proposed Carmichael coal mine.
The theme for 2017 World Environment Day is ‘connecting people to nature’
Sometimes hope can come out of disasters.
