Dear Mr Irons,
We’re writing to you as our representative in parliament. The biggest issue for us is climate change, and we are so upset by the path your government is taking. We don’t feel that you’re committed to taking real action to reduce emissions. Coal is the worst possible energy source to be investing in at the moment. As new parents with a young son, we are deeply offended by Scott Morrison’s stunt with a lump of coal in parliament as Australia faces more extreme weather. Please, for the sake of our toddler and all of our futures, take some courageous action on climate change. We would welcome an emissions trading scheme and more renewables. We want to be proud of Australia leading the way for the world.
Yours sincerely, Nathan and Nicole Hobby

Good for you, Nathan. Pollies know that a letter matters much much more than signing an online petition or flourishing hashtags. If you live in a marginal seat, it’s even better!

Thanks Lisa! Long way to an election but I hope quixotically that the current government can see how wrong they are on this. And luckily my seat is marginal!
