Many of you will have recently read about the political reality of energy politics in South Australia. With any luck, you will have taken away the message that while this type of bollocks leadership is inexcusable, so is maintaining a position of assumed powerlessness in the face of it. We need to expect more, and make those expectations known.
Then along came the recent sobering post from Brave New Climate.
Guys, I would love to wait until I have a small army behind me, but we can’t.
I’m going to keep touring, keep speaking, keep writing and keep presenting. I have committed to some face time with local supporters next year to develop a stronger program of action. But it is time I facilitated some broader communication to our political leaders, with the good old fashioned “Letter to MP”. I have prepared a form letter which you can get from me, modify to you liking and send.
Please, please, expect nothing but more bollocks from them. They have to reply with party line, and tell you what a wonderful job they are doing already (which, for those with Labor MPs will include the words “carbon price” and “Clean Energy Future” several times, and those with Liberal MPs… sorry, I’m a bit stuck there, but you get my point). Please, please, get in touch with me and request the form letter and send it to your local member anyway. Because behind the scenes I promise you, it does matter.
I know it’s not much, but let’s do it. I’ll let you know how the Mannum presentation tomorrow night goes
