Narooma High Students add their voices to Climate Change

Seán Burke was out and about in Narooma on Friday:

"So great to see our Narooma High School students walking out of school with thousands of others around the country today to get the message through to our governments that they want a future to look forward to without catastrophic climate change. Well done to all of you." On Tuesday, the Senate approved a motion to support the students in their decision to strike from school and hold a series of planned national protests. As thousands of students prepared to strike from school for climate action this week, the Australian Senate passed a motion in support of the student strikers who are calling for a national policy to tackle dangerous climate change. In response, Sydney Strike Organiser Jean Hinchliffe, 14 years old, from Fort Street High, said: “As our Prime Minister chooses to ignore the ever increasing problem of climate change, our generation has decided to step up and fill the void. We thank the Senators who have chosen to stand with young people in Parliament today, and we call on more politicians from all sides of politics to do the same. “As young people we’re already seeing the devastating impacts of climate change and will be forced to endure the consequences of our government’s inaction. We need all politicians & any future government to take the action scientists tell us we need - that means a commitment to stop Adani’s coal mine and a plan to transition away from all fossil fuels to to 100% renewable energy by 2030."
