Petition to the honourable President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows and declares that the provisions of the Federal Government’s proposed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme are inadequate to address the worsening climate crisis.

Your petitioners ask/request that the Senate use the influence and deliberations of the Senate towards instead achieving:

*A far greater reduction in carbon emissions than is currently planned (the minimum 5%, below 2000 levels, by 2020)

*Carbon reduction legislation that ensures that the voluntary reductions made by individuals and all communities are effective and counted as part of the national target.

by Senator Moore (from 245 citizens)
