Tony Abbot is back in charge

I can't believe this. 

Climate change is happening before our eyes. Around the world, young people are fighting for our future. And Scott Morrison just announced the very same climate policy that Tony Abbott made six years ago. 

Yep, that's right. The very same one that was famous for doing absolutely nothing to reduce emissions or slow climate change. 

People think that because we're kids, we're not meant to get mad about politics. We're not even meant to understand it. But I can't tell you how furious I am. 

Every day we waste is one that makes my future worse. I want your help. Our world needs your help. 

On Friday March 15 kids around the globe are striking for our futures. And we want you to join us. 

Let's show the Coalition how out of touch their 'do-nothing' climate policy is. Let's show them that the kids, and sensible adults of today, won't accept inaction. That a real climate policy means stopping coal mines like Adani's and moving to 100% renewables. 

Because if they won't listen to science, maybe they'll listen to the voice of tens of thousands of students and their parents, teachers and supporters across Australia, demanding they protect our futures. 

Will you join tens of thousands of us across Australia, standing up for our futures on March 15? 

Morrison's back-pedalling to Abbott's Direct Action era shows that the Coalition will never be the party to do what is necessary to protect our future. If we're going to act on climate change, we need to stop investing in coal and move to 100% renewables. 

I'm 16 so I can't vote. My only response to this is to take to the streets and urge you to do the same. 

Because, I deserve better and so do you.
