Climate Torch Relay
For six weeks during August and September, the GetUp Climate Torch Relay will tour right across Australia, with the community calling on our leaders to halve Australia’s greenhouse pollution by 2020.
I was due to address the Newcastle leg of the relay at Newcastle's Civic Park on Friday 22 August 2008 at noon. Alas, the train that was delivering the torch from Gosford to Newcastle was seriously delayed and the Newcastle relay had to be cancelled.
But the torch did eventually arrive and travelled on Sunday in my Prius to the proposed Tillegra Dam site on the Williams River.
More information can be found at The Wilderness Society website and the Save the Williams River website.
