Candidate for Lyons - 2
The Greens are the only political party which has embraced the necessity for real action on climate change!
Global warming is the real threat to Tasmania, to Australia and, ultimately, to the whole world. When we have effective action to roll back carbon emissions then we will protect so many things, not least among them the purity of the water we use, the air we breathe and the food we eat. We must kick our carbon habit.
I have worked as a teacher, for DPAC, in private enterprise and most recently in academic research. These experiences prepared me to pursue and evaluate the consequences of unrestrained global warming and motivated me to stand as a candidate. Tasmania needs people who are not afraid to stand up for our citizens, our environment and our fragile world. We need to put the needs of communities first, before we allow outsiders to exploit Tasmania’s natural beauty and to put profits before survival.
