Local Liberals must accept their party’s lack of action on climate change is exacerbating the damage done to Coogee Beach’s infrastructure by freak storm events – 6th June 2016

Media Statement

Local Randwick Council Liberals must repudiate their Federal colleague’s lack of climate change action

I reply to the media release by Randwick Liberal Councillor Brendan Roberts concerning the damage done by the weekend’s storm at Coogee Beach.

The Liberal Party has to accept that since 1993 global sea levels have risen by about 3.4 mm per year and that it is a result of human climate change actions. This must be exacerbating the damage by storms such as the impact of the one that damaged the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club over the weekend.

I call upon Cr Roberts and the local Liberal MP’s and candidates to repudiate the current attitude of denial clung to by the leaders of their party.

Greens Councillor Murray Matson.
