The nations of the world are closer than ever to reaching a global agreement that could see the implementation of a universal carbon tax.  At the recent UN Climate Summit in NYC, world leaders advocated for stronger measures to reduce pollution by 2020. Australian PM Tony Abbott and Canadian PM Stephen Harper weren’t there.

As an Australian-based publication we believe that our country should be leading the initiative in a global solution to our dirty energy crisis. The implementation of a carbon tax would see a boost in clean energy opportunities worldwide, with the creation of new jobs and even industries.

Currently, Australia sits at the back of class in this debate. In 2015, the world’s leaders will meet again in Paris for the UN Climate Change Conference. The world needs Australia and Canada on board.

Sign this quick petition to get Tony Abbott to pay attention to something that should be at the top of his list.
