Target too low

Fifty-degree summers will soon become the new norm for Perth as temperatures continue to rise, putting pressure on our food and water supplies.

Many of our trees are already dying from the record heatwaves and dry seasons, yet we continue to burn the fossil fuels causing climate change as if there’s no problem, no consequences at all.

Despite scientists warning us we barely have five to six years before irreversible tipping points are reached, our governments continue to set low 5 per cent targets on carbon emissions reduction.

Our children’s future is at risk – so will we wait for governments to do more than tokenistic measures, or take action ourselves and call for proper protection for our families?
