Are Climate Activists Funny?

Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on November 6th, 2012

9 November , 2012
8:00 pmto10:00 pm

Quit Coal, Climate Action Moreland and Beyond Zero Emissions are putting on a whole night where people can come and watch climate activists trying to be funny! It is comedy for, by and about the climate movement. So it’s bound to be hilarious, right?

Plus it will be raising money to help people affected by climate change through Tulele Peisa, an organization of the people of the Carteret Islands who are organizing their own relocation as their islands are inundated by sea level rise.

So make sure you get down to the Brunswick Town Hall on November the 9th. There will drinks and prizes and the almost certain humiliation of environmental campaigners. Everybody’s favourite mining magnate Twiggy Palmcock will be making an appearance too!

Tickets $20 full, $15 concession, $30 proactive supporter, $50 Climate Champion!

BYO Tomatoes for throwing.

Finish Line: Run for a Safe Climate

RunForASafeClimate

Run for a Safe Climate is a unique and powerful project aimed at protecting life, property and the great natural icons of our country from a slide towards catastrophic global warming.  The run is being performed by active and serving members of Australia’s emergency services– firefighters, paramedics, police, military and emergency services workers – many of whom were directly exposed to recent climate-driven disasters in Australia such as the 2009 Victorian bush fires.

Our running group feels very strongly that global warming presents an unprecedented threat to our food bowls, cities, water, health, security and great natural icons, and has become motivated to run 6000 kilometres across Australia to raise money for an essential scenario and risk-management planning exercise for Australia — the Safe Climate Australia Transition Plan.  A team of 25 trained runners from the various emergency services will run in a relay over 6000 kilometres to link Australia’s unique, world-renowned natural icons, most of which will be devastated if atmospheric greenhouse gas levels are not brought back to a safe climate threshold. We will also visit some of the great climate solutions that are the key to a low-carbon and clean-energy future – solar thermal and wind plants, geothermal and clean marine-derived energy sources and research facilities.
