Film and Q & A “Accelerate” (climate action in Australia)
Today, Thursday 2 May, 6 – 8 pm
Batemans Bay Soldiers Club, 6-8 Beach Rd.
Four Eurobodalla community groups have come together to make this the Climate Election.
350 Eurobodalla, SHASA (the Southcoast Health and Sustainability Alliance), the Coastwatchers Association and the Nature Coast Marine Group will screen the film “Accelerate” followed by a forum on the Climate Election.
"Eurobodalla is in hot water….
"We have record water temperatures at our ocean beaches, the bushfire at Tathra was fiercer than anything our fire brigades had seen before and we have a “green drought”. There’s enough rain to keep the grass growing, but we have ongoing water shortages.
"Climate chaos is already harming the Eurobodalla. Tropical fish are moving south and sea urchins are eating up the kelp on rocky reefs. Beekeepers say the gum trees are flowering at the wrong time and losing their blossoms. Farmers are finding there is no depth of moisture in the soil.
"Climate chaos will get worse unless we act. We are screening the film “Accelerate” to encourage people to consider the Climate Crisis when they vote."
