Matthew Lambourne, Mullumbimby

The Prime Minister wants our children to ‘feel positive about their future’, while he fails to act on climate change, the biggest threat to that future, and rubbishes those who try to draw attention to that failure.

Our kids might feel more positive about the future if we had a government with a credible plan to address the climate issue, with real policies in place to implement that plan.

If we had those, we could join with New Zealand, the Pacific islands and other small island states to make a block with real influence in global forums, and put serious pressure on the climate laggards like the US, China, Brazil and India.

Australia addressing its own climate issues and taking a constructive role globally might give the kids some hope that we can deal positively with an uncertain future.
