I am involved in various Moreland-based community groups including Sustainable Fawkner where I blog on local and sustainability issues, Climate Action Moreland and Moreland Bicycle Users Group. I am also a member of Friends of the Earth, off and on, since 1976, and wrote the contribution on the Rides Against Uranium in the 1970s for the Friends of the Earth Australia book to mark the 30-year anniversary of FoE – 30 Years of Creative Resistance.

Environmental organisations including the Australian Conservation Foundation, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Greenpeace and others organised a rally event in Melbourne to ‘shine a light on the reef’ after Monday’s Federal Court judicial review announcement found that Environment minister Greg Hunt’s approval of the Adani Carmichael coal mine followed the legal process. The Coal from the mine when burnt is projected to release 4.7 billion tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere, adding to further global warming and ultimately causing further coral bleaching events on the Great Barrier Reef. The new Energy and Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg has the power to reverse the mine approval.
