Dear Prime Minister Rudd,
Thank you for personally visiting the COP15 negotiations at Copenhagen, however I ask you this one thing.
Please stop playing games, wake up and take a look at the consensus around you, and sign a real climate deal. Can you not hear the citizens of your country calling out for strong action? 100,000 of us Walked Against Warming so that you would listen. Can’t you see the rest of the world bar a few other rich countries are not mucking around anymore. Their citizens held a vigil on Friday night all around the world to make sure their leaders did the right thing.
For the sake of our future, and as a nation that can still provide for itself, and all those nations that will not be able to fend for themselves as climate change starts to kick in hard, sign a fair, ambitious and binding deal at Copenhagen. The time for shallow promises is over. The time for political games is over. The time for positive action is now, or we will never have another chance to correct the wrongs of the past.
Sign up to a deal that will ensure that we return to 350 ppm CO2e or less, so that we can be leaders in the green economy and do our part towards avoiding catestrophic climate change. I know you have the courage to do what is right and fair.
Gavin, and millions of other concerned Australians
