A party for the climate: a personal view

Independents for Climate Action Now is a very new political party which aims to work with both sides of politics to push Australia towards climate action. Their website shows their policy statements and their brief history.

The party leader, who heads the ICAN Senate ticket in NSW, is Father Rod Bower. Fr Bower is famous for the messages he posted on the signboard  of the East Gosford Anglican Church.

If climate is a single issue, then ICAN is a single issue party and for this election I’m a single issue voter.

I can’t see Fr Bower being elected, but it seems to me that a vote for ICAN is the clearest way I can tell my representatives that action on climate must be their first priority.
