Climate action needed


Members of the Grafton Loop of the Knitting Nannas Against Gas and Greed have written to the Member for Page, Kevin Hogan, about their concern about the Federal Government’s lack of action on climate change.

It is quite obvious to the Nannas and to many other members of the community in our electorate and elsewhere that the pace of climate change is accelerating and that we are going to be subjected to an increasing range of impacts which will cause distress to individuals and communities as well as having major and long-term effects on the economy.

The Nannas are astounded at the Government’s lack of response to this growing climate emergency. The fact that it has no climate policy is appalling and grossly incompetent. It shows a lack of concern for the national interest and for future generations of Australians.

While the Nannas have called on Mr Hogan to tell them what he, as a member of a government party, proposes to do to remedy this disgraceful situation, we believe that he needs to give this information to the electorate as a whole.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
