What we'll do

Dear All

Southern Sydney group of Citizens' Climate Lobby meets at Oatley RSL on the second Sunday of the month. The meeting starts at 2:30 pm, but all are welcome to join us for a light meal from 1:15 pm on the ground floor - look for the Citizens' Climate Lobby T-shirts.

After welcome and introductions, long-time members explain to newcomers how Citizens' Climate Lobby advocacy for action on climate change complements protest demonstrations.

We entertain, educate and support each other in raising public awareness about the seriousness and urgency of acting to find solutions to the climate disruption problem by
- proposing a brilliant method of pricing fossil fuels
- helping each other with writing letters to newspapers and to community leaders
- form well-thought-out strategies for meetings with community leaders, including politicians, especially to encourage consensus on the urgent need to stem carbon emissions.

You will have opportunities to have your say.

We need more hands on deck because the task is enormous. Let's avoid the global hot house! 1.5 degrees will be very difficult, 2 degrees will be a disaster, present Paris commitments or 3 degrees is a catastrophe, business as usual could give us 12 degrees of warming if we lose sub-tropical cloud cover. Above picture shows average maximum temperature for September has increased 1.4 degrees Celsius since 1970.

Our meetings are interesting and enjoyable, even though the underlying motive is serious and the involvement of people at the "grass-roots" level has never been more important.

No pressure. Just come for a short amusing video if you don't feel in a political mood.

Hoping to see you there!
