Candidates need to address climate change

Editor,

It was wonderful to see fresh faces stepping up to run for Council (Time for Change? Monaro Post, Sept 29). Mostly young and mostly women. Nevertheless, in the four questions they asked, none were about climate change which is likely to affect everyone in the Snowy Monaro region in coming years.

It’s time for change!

Editor,

It’s time to ensure the Snowy Monaro community is wholly and accurately represented and engaged in decision-making. It’s time for change to introduce accountability and transparency.

Democracy, anarchy and misinformation

Editor,

I think Max Perry was bang on the money when he defined democracy in The Post on September 15. Ms Warburton (Post 22 September), however, seems to have missed the point where she says “this is not a democracy any more like the one I knew and voted for”.

Riposte by Lisa Ashurst

Instant Karma. That’s what it had to have been when the kids came up with the idea to pull a prank on me the next time we were all managed to get together. It evolved from something Daughter had spotted while trawling ebay and they all thought it would be a hoot. Like, what could possibly go wrong?

Local global climate action

Editor,

 Locally, here on our farm at Moonbah we are pretty excited. Three weeks ago we completed the installation of our solar panels and batteries, a 13.2 kW system. Since then we have avoided a total of 776 kg of carbon dioxide emissions (getting close to a tonne, and every tonne matters if we want to do the collective hard work to avoid 1.5 degrees of global warming!).

Definition of democracy

Editor,

Reference the letter from Pamela Warburton:

I’m afraid, Pamela Warburton, your memory of democracy must be far more selective than mine when you make reference to the idyllic ‘democracy’ you once knew.
