Despite alarming melting of the polar icecaps and unprecedented bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef, the Turnbull government refuses to take action on climate change. The Coalition's failure leaves communities exposed to impacts such as increasing heatwaves, bushfires, droughts, and storms.
The Daniel Andrews government accepts climate change as a "genuine threat." It has shown leadership by strengthening the Climate Change Act 2017, banning onshore gasfields, and committing to the Victorian Renewable Energy Target.
We need to ramp up action on climate change now more than ever.
The Federal Coalition's refusal to act means we need more political leadership from the state government.
That's why FoE's Act on Climate campaign is kicking off a campaign to call on Premier Daniel Andrews to deliver Victoria's first climate budget in 2018. It's time for the Andrews government to invest in climate action!
