Letter to the Editor - Wednesday, November 26: Changing teams

THE selfish attitude of our Federal Government on the climate change issue has become a major embarrassment to Australia.

To make money out of selling dirty coal, and in the process sinking our Pacific neighbours, is immoral. To reduce our effort and research into alternative energy sources is direct stupidity.

So my message to the government is that as long as Abbott and Bishop are in government, I will withdraw from Team Australia and join the Rest of the World Team fighting global warming.

Further I will take "direct action" to prevent us expanding our coal exports, by preventing coal ships leaving the port of Newcastle.
