Egged on by big polluters with vested interests, who believe that "coal is good for humanity", the Australian government has refused to put climate change on the G20 agenda.
Discussing climate change at the G20 is an important step on the road to the UN climate talks in Paris next year. Several world leaders and the United States government have already expressed their desire to keep it on the agenda, but Tony Abbott has said no.
This is yet another backward step by the Australian government on efforts to tackle climate change, after they scrapped the price on pollution earlier this year, were shamefully absent from the UN Climate Summit in New York and are now considering slashing the Renewable Energy Target.
China, the US and Europe are all taking action to cut pollution and develop clean energy solutions, after world leaders urged 'decisive action to contain global warming'. But the Australian government does not seem to be listening.
This issue can no longer fall on deaf ears.
At this crucial moment, when the eyes of the world are on Australia, it is time to see responsible action from our countries leaders.
Please, join thousands of other Australians and raise your voice to tell the Australian government: climate change is on our agenda, please put it on yours.
