A letter to my local MP Nicola Roxon about putting a price on carbon pollution

Dear Nicola

This email is to help give you moral support to stand up to the shock jocks and denialists, and to encourage you and the ALP to stand firm in your support of a price on carbon. 

I'm delighted that we are on the same side in this debate! I was very pleased to be standing side by side with ALP members at the Melbourne rally the weekend before last. We had a very enthusiastic group of westie locals travel to the rally on the train that morning - it was quite an occasion as we left Footscray.

You know as well as I do that a price on carbon and a fair go for renewable energy via decent feed in tariffs are foundation stones of building a safe climate economy, which is what we need to do, must do urgently, if we are to have a fair, just and sustainable future. 

It makes me so angry that the Alan Jones and Andrew Bolts of the world are playing politics with our future, and the quality of life that we will experience in our lifetimes, and that my kids John and Leon, your daughter Rebecca will inherit.

Kind regards,
