In support of our youth

I agree with John Fleming‘s praise of the school students’ action on climate change and Imogen Viner’s appeal to the Prime Minister in her open letter published recently by The Classifieds. We should applaud our young people’s plea to our politicians to accept the indisputable evidence on climate change, to agree an energy policy that effectively reduces emissions, divests from coal, promotes renewal energy and reduces costs. Cooperative action by our politicians should be able to protect our lives and our environment and be an example to other countries in our region. It is really distressing to see the reaction to the school students’ action from our Prime Minister and some of his ministers, apparently putting economic issues above the future of our planet and continued pleasant lifestyles.
Please support our young people and pressure our Government into taking the action needed to save our planet.
Elizabeth Haworth
