Climate Action Hobart (CAH) will be launching their ‘Safe Climate Scorecard’ letterboxing campaign tomorrow.

4000 Safe Climate Scorecards will be delivered to households in Denison prior to the state election.

The launch will follow tonight’s ‘Vote for a Safe Climate’ public forum where the parties will go head to head on their climate credentials and are expected to announce new climate change policies.

Speakers include Lisa Singh MP, Vanessa Goodwin MLC, Cassy O’Connor MP and Melanie Barnes, candidate for Denison.

The forum is on tonight at 6.30pm in the Stanley Burbury Lecture Theatre, Churchill Ave, UTAS, Sandy Bay.

Climate Action Hobart is a grassroots climate action group formed in March 2009 to promote community involvement in achieving strong climate policy in Tasmania.
