Peaceful nurse-in in Byron on Friday

Mums concerned about the government’s lack of climate change policy are coming together to take action this Friday November 29 from 10am, outside the Byron Library. Everyone is welcome to come and support them.

They say they are taking action in an attempt to call attention to their children’s future and the government’s inefficient and ineffective attempts at mitigating extreme weather events. As mothers, they are also promoting a public breast/bottle feeding nurse-in.

One of the organising mums and botanist Claudia Pigatti Caliari told The Echo,  ‘Australia has warmed by 0.8°C from 1960 to 2003.

‘Heatwaves, fires, floods, and southern Australian droughts are all expected to become more frequent and more intense in the coming decades.’

Caliari added, ‘The way the government has been dealing with precious natural resources, like the Murray Darling basin, will be seen as “maladministration” in the very near future, and our kids’ natural resources will vanish if we don’t change the way we have been doing “politics”.’

Referring to the fires and drought, she said, ‘This is climate change, and mothers everywhere are concerned for their children’s future.’

    I think Clive James was right to refer to all this as “manufactured fright”

  2. As eloquent as he was, Clive James was not a scientist, and was more interested in being witty and making people laugh. I suppose in your mind Alan Jones is an expert?
