Tell Daniel Andrews why you want strong climate targets

Send a personal message to Daniel Andrews

Call on him to set strong climate targets for 2025 and 2030 in line with limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees, and tell him why it’s important to you.

The current bushfire crisis shows how climate change is affecting people, wildlife and our economy right now.

In the face of federal inaction, Premiers like Daniel Andrews must step up to the challenge of creating a safe climate future.

The state government is currently setting short-term targets to reduce climate pollution towards our legislated goal of zero net emissions by 2050. The level of ambition set in these targets will flow down to every decision the government and wider Victorian community makes on climate for the next ten years.

Send the Premier a personalised message to let him know why you want him to set strong climate targets consistent with keeping warming below 1.5 degrees.

Writing your own message takes a minute longer but is so much more powerful. And be polite!

Key points you could make:

  • The severity of these fires demands an urgent response to climate change.
  • It’s good to see the Victorian government responding to concerns about climate while the federal government is missing in action.
  • We are currently experiencing the effects of just over 1 degree of warming. Natural disasters, including bushfire seasons, will become much worse unless warming is slowed.
  • However the Victorian government must go further and put in place targets consistent with keeping warming below 1.5 degrees.
  • The biggest single source of climate pollution in Australia is from burning coal. The government should phase out the old, dirty coal power stations that are causing climate change and replace them with renewable energy and storage
