GetUp: A government that doesn’t take real action on climate change can’t keep us safe

Media Release

Ned Haughton, climate scientist and bushfire survivor, has recorded a message for the Prime Minister:

“We need real and immediate climate action, funding for renewables and the RFS, and the fossil fuel lobby out of government pockets. You can’t advertise your way out of this one.”

His message launches GetUp’s new platform today – bushfires.getup.org.au – for bushfire survivors and everyday people across the country to directly send Prime Minister Morrison a message he can’t turn his back on.Today’s National Press Club address makes clear this government is refusing to break the cycle of climate denial and inaction with no plan to keep us safe from future climate disasters.

GetUp’s National Director Paul Oosting says people want ambitious climate leadership:

“This summer has been devastating, it has touched the entire country, and it’s still front of mind how we got here.

“Adjusting the government’s languaging on climate change isn’t good enough, we need urgent and ambitious policies that will protect the country in the face of these climate disasters.

“We need real action – end fossil fuel subsidies, restore and expand funding to the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and recommit to the Renewable Energy Target – with the ambition this crisis deserves.

“After a catastrophic summer the Prime Minister’s position on climate change is unmoved. His words today addressed the fallout of the bushfires, but still don’t look at the bigger picture.

“Australians want our government to join the rest of the world and take urgent action to reduce climate pollution, while we still can.

“We’re standing with the firefighters and bushfire survivors crying out for climate action by amplifying their voices and taking them directly to the Prime Minister in a message he can’t ignore,” Mr Oosting said.

    The filthy odious datedropping, known as the Head Moron, is the worst example we’ve ever had of a boneless jellybrained object of derision. He is riddled with brainless superstition, and, sickening in the skull, seems to believe he is saved, chosen, enlightened, special, indispensable. A stab in the back is needed, though the alternatives are crapcraniums and corporate crawlers and bumboys. Ambitious people inflate their tiny conservative career chasing minds, seeking wealth and fame from graft and infamy, some of whom could not operate a jigsaw well. If a turd like Canavan or Fat George the filipino fistfondling self fixer drove a local bus, I’d refuse it and walk!! And, the photo always shown of Morrison with a lump is false; it is not coal, but a dark piece of faecal matter provided by the bribery and corruption boys, accidently swallowed whole instead of stored. What is it? Is it a piece of Joyce’s skull ballast? Or Dutton’s twisted bowel rising to the surface? Perhaps it’s a lobbyists deposit, but from the bowel and not the bank.

    I really thought abbot was the bottom of the barrel but apparently not. There is just something so obscence and odious about this imbecile in charge and constant arrogant smirk. The replacements are almost as bad.

    Albo does not appear to be leadership material and there are no up an commers in the labour party that look to have potential either.

    We are just so up the proverbial creek in this country, it makes me depressed. Im sure im not alone.

    Australia is a country of boiling frogs gullible enough to to keep voting the L/NP back to the government benches. Even with massive amounts of evidence of crooked dealings and criminal acts voters continue to forgive and forget. Doing tbe same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome is insanity. Australia is officially a lunatic asylum.

    Interesting to see what the next few days brings to South East Australia. Watch out Scott, if something REALLY bad happens.
