Tony Abbott is a climate change denier. Previously open about his denial, he paid lip service to addressing climate change while getting elected, but his "direct action" plan is designed to fail, and his true self became even more clear when he got into office and quickly abolished the Climate Commission.
Tim Flannery and his colleagues at the Climate Commission saw it coming, and before the election started to make plans to continue the Commission's work as a non-governmental organisation. Yesterday they announced the Climate Council would form, and started to seek donations from the public.

Head over to www.climatecouncil.org.au to donate. Think of a small donation as your way of saying "Fuck you!" to Tony Abbott.
Hopefully crowd sourcing will end up with a better funded Climate Commission/Council than we had before.
