MORE than 200 people united for the National Day of Climate Action at\nMargaret River’s Gnarabup Beach on Sunday. The event was short and sweet with a group singalong and speeches by\nDr Bill Castleden of the Margaret River Climate Change Action and Peppa Lane. They spoke about the need to convey facts and not let media bias and\nminority views carry the politics. “We know Australia is\ngetting warmer and we know rainfall is dropping,” Dr Castleden said. “We can\npredict wild fires will worsen. &nbsp;“But we’ve chosen to elect a government that\nis going to do less and less.” He encouraged people to\napproach politicians and remind them of the climate concerns. Ms Lane said there was a\nsmall window of opportunity to take action to prevent irreversible climate\nimpacts. Some people had their\nfaces painted and signed messages to politicians. Event organiser Karen\nMajer of Transition Margaret River said she was delighted with the turnout. “The spirit was wonderful with little kids, teenagers, young families\nright through to people in their 80s, all united by this one concern,” she said. About 60,000 people met across Australia with 200-plus&nbsp;events held for the National Day of Climate Action. The initiative was by activist groups GetUp!, the Australian Youth Climate Coalition and the Australian Conservation\nFoundation.
