Action on Climate Change
Members of the Grafton Loop of the Knitting Nannas Against Gas and Greed are very concerned about the Federal Government's lack of action on climate change.
It is quite obvious to us and to many other members of the community in our electorate and elsewhere that the pace of climate change is accelerating and that we are going to be subjected to an increasing range of impacts which will cause distress to individuals and communities as well as having major and long-term effects on the economy.
And what is the Federal Government's response to this building climate emergency? NOTHING. It has no climate policy. This is more than astounding; it is appalling and grossly incompetent. It shows a lack of concern for the national interest and for future generations of Australians.
We are well aware that you now sit on the cross bench - BUT you are a member of the National Party which is part of the Federal Government and you were recently endorsed by that party as their candidate for Page in the upcoming federal election.
The fact that you are sitting on the cross bench does not in any way absolve you from responsibility for the policy of your party or the government of which it is part.
So, Mr Hogan, what are you, as our local member, going to do to remedy this disgraceful situation?
We would very much appreciate a response to this question.
