Cabinet has just released its highly anticipated carbon pollution reduction target and it’s dangerously low. Sign our petition calling Cabinet to chose a stronger target.
The pollution reduction target is meant to protect Australians, our children and vulnerable populations from the worst impacts of climate change, but Cabinet’s target is not enough.
The good news is that the target is only Australia’s initial offer. And with domestic and international pressure building for Australia to do its fair share to reduce pollution, we have an opportunity to make a difference.
Out of deep love for our neighbours and a passionate concern for the flourishing of God's earth, let’s send an immediate response to Cabinet to urge them to choose a stronger pollution reduction target.

Rosie Clare Shorter reflects on Rebecca Huntley’s new book 'How to Talk About Climate Change in a Way That Makes a Difference', encouraging us to turn our concern and anxiety about climate change into action.
Sculptor Keith Chidzey reflects on how the simple act of knitting a scarf (and building the world’s longest knitting needles) helps speak to the heart and scale of action needed to tackle climate change.
Gomeroi woman Bianca Manning reflects on the many stories the climate scarf tells, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and the need for these stories and voices to inform and lead our calls for climate justice.
Sue Pyke shares the story of three generations working together to knit their climate stripe scarf - a journey of patience, persistence and purpose that weaves together their concern for the future and hopes for climate action.
