Climate Change and the Federal Election
GetUp!, the Australian grassroots lobbying group, has created an ad parodying the Howard Government's climate change policies and spin. In the space of a couple of days, nearly over $200,000 worth of donations have poured in to get this on air during this weekend's Big Boofy Blokes Kicking a Ball Around grand final.
It's so heartening to see so many people digging into their pockets. The environment is finally becoming a mainstream issue!
