The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Energy Council will gather in Hobart, Tasmania this Friday the 24th of November to discuss the policy. It's important they know where the community stands.
With alarming melting of the polar icecaps, unprecedented bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef, and a hot summer looming, now is not the time to delay action on climate change.
