Sorry kids


This post was made in November 2013. Today, 14 July 2014, our action on climate change is being repealed in the Australian House of Reps. The message remains the same…..

Sorry kids, some of us did try, and we still are. A man called Tony Abbott made the majority of adults in Australia believe that they can vote away climate change.

Until those people realise what happened in Parliament today (or even take notice) I’m afraid your future is under threat. Hopefully your generation will be more engaged, more educated, and less gullible. Until then, please know that many of us are still going to try and make a difference anyway. Sorry future, sorry kids, sorry science. We did try.
