The Walk for Solar ended on 30th September with a resounding rally of 1500 people in Adelaide and a national groundswell of support was clearly evident in the 20 SOLARdarity Walks held around the country from Cable Beach in Broome to the top of Mt Kosciuzsko, in Perth and all up the east coast as far as Townsville and Cairns.

Across Australia on June 5 people will stand up and say YES to action on climate change a price on pollution!
At 11am (1pm in Brisbane, 1.30 in Canberra) on Sunday, June 5, we'll come together in every major city to show our support for action on climate change.
In today's Canberra Times, Greens senator, Christine Milne, stated, almost verbatim, 100% Renewables demand for Australia to implement the transition from fossil fuels to renewables.
''While Labor is still wedded to its outdated target to reduce Australia's pollution by 60per cent by 2050, the Greens read and understand the climate science and are committed to setting Australia on the path to a zero emissions economy as soon as possible,'' Senator Milne said.
Here's is a link to an article in the Climate Spectator which covers the 1,000 page IPCC report which details how, and at what cost, the world could be powered by renewables by 80%: http://www.climatespectator.co

The Australian Conservation Fund (ACF) has recently published a report detailing the $12 billion of subsidies being paid in support of fossil fuels: http://www.acfonline.org.au/uploads/res/climate_expenditure_and_subsidies.pdf
Wouldn't be great if this hypocrisy was turned around 180% and those funds given to renewables! There'd be no need for a market based carbon pollution price and they could get on with implementing a national FiT insteadl!!
Today, I'm writing through bleary eyes home in Sydney following my return from six weekends of campaign workshops in six towns across the country. I'm not quite sure what city I'm in and my bedroom looks like a hurricane has hit, hurling used butchers paper, scrunched clothes and old flyers around the room.
My topsy turvy home life is only matched by the topsy turvy world outside - a world where angry Abbott and his attempted people's revolt, together with parts of the the media, are doing their darnedest to block any action on climate change.
