Australia passes a price on pollution in the House!

Hello Australian 350ites, Today Australia took a huge step – a committed effort to work to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, to invest in clean energy and to find innovative ways to tackle climate change. It’s a massive success for all of us who have worked hard, spoken up at community meetings about the issue and organised events to call for action – that’s you! At 9:29 am, The House of Representatives pa    r events to the African countries facing devastating drought – so many will benefit from the action we took in Australia today. Smile, pat yourself on the back and be proud of what we achieved today! It’s just the beginning of getting us back to 350 parts per million but it’s a great beginning! Now onto the Senate vote and a clean energy future! Many thanks for all of your efforts! Blair Palese and the 350.org Australian team
