Climate change advocate Yeb Sano to visit
FILIPINO climate change advocate Yeb Sano will give a free talk at the Whitsunday Arts and Cultural Centre on Sunday, June 14, from 2.30–4pm.
Hosted by Whitsunday Resi- dents Against Dumping, ECOCEQ and Greenpeace; local climate change campaigner Tony Fontes said Mr Sano would draw climate comparisons between Australia and the Philippines.
“He’s promoting climate change. It’s time to do something about it,” Mr Fontes said.
“Whether it’s to protect the reef from bleaching and acidification or an island nation like the Philip- pines from sea level rise or severe weather events, we need to do something.
“I think it’s pretty obvious why he’s focusing on Australia – because we’re not (doing anything).”
