The science is now unequivocal, 97% of climate scientists say climate change is occurring and is human induced. Already Australia is feeling the impact, with 123 weather records broken last summer and the hottest 12 months on record.
But on the weekend, more than 60,000 Australians rallied sending a clear message to political leaders that it is time for action.
Burleigh Beach was one of 130 locations for climate rallies across the country, in a campaign organised by GetUp and locally by Australian Youth Climate Coalition.
More than 200 people attended the Burleigh rally. If you’d like more information about AYCC or climate change campaigns locally, check out their Facebook page.
