Double Discussion, Climate and Nature Forum, Hobart

There’s an election on and that’s a chance to explore policies and understand the future that individual candidates stand for.

It’s an unusual election - a double dissolution, meaning the whole federal parliament is up for election. So we’re organising the opportunity for senate candidates to front up and explain their policies on climate and nature protection

Billed as a "double discussion" the forum on Monday lunchtime 6th of June, 12.30 pm at Hadley's Hotel, 34 Murray street, Hobart will give you the chance to engage with the people who could be making the decisions affecting your future.

Double Discussion Climate and Nature Senate Forum 

What: Double Discussion, Climate and Nature Senate Forum – Hobart.

When: Monday June 6th,  12.30 pm lunchtime

Where: Hadley's Hotel, 34 Murray street, Hobart.

You can share the event on face book and please invite your family and friends to come along.

These forums will give you the chance to engage with the people who could be making the decisions that affect your future. 

With its ‘cleanest air in the world’, Tasmania just recorded a milestone  400 parts per million carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Despite the clean, green and clever rhetoric, our iconic swift parrot  was just listed as critically endangered, in imminent threat of extinction.

It’s clear, things are broken.

National nature laws aren’t working - if they exempt logging, but logging is pushing the parrot towards extinction.

Climate action isn’t effective - if we’re expanding fossil fuel exports, logging forests and clearing land with massive emissions.

Ask a question. Make a statement. Get informed and value your vote.

How is it legal for our government to allow Big Cotton companies to take ALL of the water from the townships of Broken Hill and Menindee Lakes. The lakes have NO water and are now a cracked mud pan to the horizon. I stood there and saw it recently. Animals and people who live there have lost an invaluable rescource. For the animals it is life threatening. The people can move but why should they have to? They talk of putting Broken Hill on bore water. What will that do long term to underground water and stability of the area. How can this be allowed. Could it happen in Hobart, Melbourne or Sydney? What would happen if it did. Would we quietly accept? Shame on you Federal and State governments for allowing this at all.
