The Lithgow Environment Group is very concerned about the lack of action by our politicians to combat climate change. With our politicians bogged down in politics we agree with Mark Diesendorf that change can come from the actions of communities. With coal mines and coal fired power stations surrounding Lithgow we feel truly "at the coal face" of this action.
No New Coal Event on Bondi Beach on January 30, 2010 where we proved that you can't clean coal.
Images: "100 Per Cent Renewables" action at Lithgow's Miners Lamp on May 1, 2010, and the 350 Event held on October 23, 2009 in front of the historic ruins of Australia's first steelworks.
We have not given up writing petitions and letters to our politicians and we are directly involved locally through our members on Lithgow's Environment Advisory Committee and Delta's Community Reference Group.
We are associated with the Katoomba Climate Action Now group and their excellent web site has all the info and links we would like to show.
