CRITICAL DATE (was 18th Feb)

The Climate Committee is meeting this Friday (18th Feb) and is expected to be making announcements about carbon pricing and other matters soon. 
An announcement of a low price on Carbon of around $20 per tonne is anticipated. The big polluters will disingenuously claim it will cost lots of jobs.

Let the committee members know how you feel by joining the “Climate Callout”-  phone Climate Committee members on Thursday 17 February 2011. 8am to 12 noon. Tell them to:
 
1.  Put a high price on carbon now -and phase in  $40 – $50 per tonne.  

2.  Take real action to combat dangerous climate change: 80-100% renewable energy by 2020.
 
3.   End all fossil fuel subsidies ($8.6 Billion per annum)
 
4.  Support solar, wind and geo-thermal power industries and new clean energy jobs.
 
5.  Support communities impacted by phasing out of coal based industries.   

6.  Create a new Government authority to steer a transition to a renewable energy based economy
 
7.   No compensation to the big polluters
