Who on Earth Cares? is a campaign that brings together Australians from all walks of life who are concerned about climate change and want Australia to reduce its greenhouse pollution.
As well as allowing you to place yourself on a map and indicate the personal steps you are undertaking to reduce global warming, the site allows the generation of a simple, personalised letter to send to your local political representative about why you want leadership on climate change.
Although there are signs that political leaders are appearing to respond to community concerns about this issue, to judge from the responses to the questionnaire put to all members of Parliament which were posted on the website, it appears that climate change as an issue does not seem have the urgency and priority that the mounting scientific evidence would demand.
Your participation in the above campaign is a chance to impress upon our political representatives the importance of addressing this issue.
