For Mother’s Day

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, For Mother’s Day, I want to be able to spend the day with my children knowing they have a safe future ahead of them. For this to happen, the government needs to take action on climate change. I want the government to commit to a greener future – zero emissions by 2030 and jobs being created in climate positive projects rather than climate damaging projects such as coal, gas and oil. It is my role as a mother to protect my children and provide them with everything they need for a happy and safe future. When the Government does not act on climate change, I cannot offer my children the future they deserve. When my children are grown and don’t need me as much as they do now, I want to be able to tell them we did everything we could to ensure their future was safe and that we took care of our planet for them. After all, we don’t own the earth, we are only borrowing it from our children. Melissa


COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available until an alternate system of author verification can be investigated and hopefully installed.

Those who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
