We need an urgent plan to tackle climate change.

I stand with the Climate Council and Emergency Leaders for Climate Action in urging all political leaders in Australia to take urgent, immediate action on climate change to protect Australians from the escalating bushfire risk. 

Dear Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese, and all political leaders in Australia,

This is not about political arguments. It’s about scientific facts.

Climate change is worsening extreme weather events, exacerbating bushfire conditions and putting Australian lives, properties and livelihoods at greater risk.

These fires are bigger, more intense and more dangerous than we’ve ever seen before. They’re happening earlier in the year, they’re causing more damage and they’re harder to fight.

It’s time for all Governments - State and Federal, Liberal and Labor - to protect Australians by:

- Taking immediate action on climate change, including the rapid reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions and substantial investment to fast-track the transition to renewable energy.
- Acting now to fully resource our emergency services and protect Australians from the worsening bushfire risk.

We, the undersigned, call on all politicians in Australia to start showing decisive leadership in the face of the escalating climate crisis.
