Climate Change Rally on Sunday

It was a fantastic morning for the rally, warm and sunny and the community of Melbourne responded with a good turn-out of Climate Change Realists. Good speakers passed the message that people must lead our governments in progressing meaningful changes to help reverse Global Warming.  The take-home message being Climate Change issues and solutions are too important to leave in the hands of Tony Abbott’s  Direct Action on Climate Change Hoax.

There were many sobering reminders on recent disastrous weather events, both here and abroad, These energy fueled events are only going to become more frequent and more intense, as the drier winters and hotter summers create the conditions for wilder wildfires, and the heating of our oceans  transfer more energy  into tropical cyclones making them increasing more powerful.

As with all rallies the most creative parts are the banners, placards and other methods of delivering your very own personal message. I managed to get a good selection of the best and display them here.

I have started with our very own Kate and Cheryl with their very relevant message.

My fav being “bicycles save icicles”

Please enjoy

Congratulation to Neil Pilling, Glen Eira’s new Greens Mayor

bgegreens_mayoral_get-together_12-11-2013 copyLast night saw Cr. Neil Pilling become Glen Eira’s new Mayor, this is a first for both Glen Eira and for the Bayside, Glen Eira Greens. The above group of fellow Greens were on-hand to enjoy the moment. Neil won the support of his council colleagues convincingly, and spoke very well on his vision for the City of Glen Eira. It was especially good to catch-up with Beck & Bro who’s home was the epicentre of the campaign to get Neil elected as a Rosstown Councillor five years ago.
