Climate Summit decides 2009 objectives

Here are the 2009 objectives agreed at the Australian Climate Summit for climate action. Please see Greenpeace for the full story:

"300 climate campaigners agreed by consensus to three campaign objectives for 2009:
  1. Prevent the carbon pollution reduction scheme from becoming law.
  2. Build a community-wide action to demand green jobs, a just transition and 100% renewable energy by 2020.
  3. Build community support for a goal of stabilisation at 300ppm CO2 and strong international agreement in line with what science and global justice demands. Communicate this position to the Copenhagen Conference of Parties and advocate for the Australian government to adopt this position.
After two days of intense negotiation, these common objectives are testimony to the will of Australians to move in chorus during this crucial year of climate action."
