If Australian politicians don't understand the science and impacts of climate change, how can we ever expect them to lead on the solutions?
Research by the University of Queensland reveals Australian political leaders overall are less likely to accept climate change science, and the need to act, than members of the general public.
Next election we are facing the potential of a Government led by Tony Abbott. Under this scenario, the federal Senate becomes crucially important.
Help make sure every federal Senator receives a copy of Anna Rose's new book Madlands: A Journey to Change the Mind of a Climate Sceptic. You never know the impact it might have on a federal Senator whose vote might make the difference between retaining or keeping the price on carbon.
All their questions about the science and impacts of climate change answered in one easy-to-read travel story. They'll have no excuses left to reject the science.
You can nominate a particular Senator who you most think needs to read the book, or leave it up to the AYCC team to make sure every pollie receives this essential reading material.
There are 76 Senators in the Australian Parliament. To give each a book costs $2280. There are 150 MPs in the House of Representatives. To buy each of them a copy costs $4500. Total is $6780.
Let's make sure they have a copy of Anna's book on their desk before the next federal election.
