Yarra Valley Climate Action Group:
World Environment Day Message
By Dr Gideon Polya
09 June, 2010
The Melbourne-based Yarra Valley Climate Action Group, Australia, was heavily involved in World Environment Day (5 June 2010) with a continuing, week-long local library display, a demonstration outside the local Federal Labor MP electoral office and through wide public distribution of the following poster:
WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY - 5 June.
Return atmosphere carbon dioxide (CO2) to 300 parts per million (ppm) from current dangerous 390 ppm.
100% renewable energy ASAP.
Cessation of greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution & deforestation ASAP.
Cessation of mass species extinction.
Carbon Tax to put proper price on GHG pollution (ETS ineffective).
For details see Yarra Valley Climate Action Group & 300.org.
World Environment Day (5 June 2010) has just passed but the worsening Climate Emergency remains – indeed every day should be World Environment Day. Please tell everyone you can about the above World Environment Day message – indeed re-format, edit and distribute the above poster in your part of the world.
