Destructive weather fueled by climate change is causing an increase in floods, fires, droughts, sea level rise and cyclones that are devastating lives all over the world, and already causing great harm to our Asia Pacific neighbours.
Climate justice is within reach
A more equal world is possible. One where any of us vulnerable to the climate crisis have the resources to survive extreme weather, and the opportunity to build sustainable futures for generations to come.
To get there, first the biggest fossil fuel polluters must be properly taxed. This will generate money to help communities avoid and recover from the loss and damage caused by climate disaster.
Rich polluters must begin compensating for the devastation they’ve caused to the environment and the lives of people who have done the least to cause the climate crisis.
People everywhere are pushing governments of the world’s richest nations to make this a reality. Join them.
Urge Federal Treasurer, Jim Chalmers
to properly tax rich polluters now.Dear Treasurer...
People everywhere are suffering from the climate crisis, while the biggest polluters become even more wealthy. It is only fair to hold these polluters to account for their damaging activities.
We ask you to make rich polluters pay, to generate finance that can support communities in avoid and recover from loss and damage caused by floods, storms, sea-level rise and other climate impacts.
Destructive weather fueled by climate change is causing an increase floods, fires, and historic famines that are devastating lives all over the world. Whilst climate change affects us all, it hurts some people more than others and many communities are struggling to survive.
Women, young people, First Peoples, and those already experiencing poverty or inequality are at greatest risk.
The climate crisis and the system that created it are the biggest contributors to global poverty and inequality today. Years of reckless climate policy has allowed fossil fuel giants to get rich by mining and burning coal, oil and gas like there’s no tomorrow while those who contributed least to the crisis are plunged deeper into poverty. It is estimated that climate change could drive a further 122 million people into extreme poverty by 2030.
