‘Once-in-100-year’ disasters are happening every year
The storms and floods battering New South Wales right now are the latest in an accelerating series of climate fuelled disasters. The cumulative impacts of these bushfires, droughts and floods are devastating.
The people hit worst by these floods are communities in Western Sydney and regional NSW that have already been left behind by governments. Poor and working class communities are bearing the brunt of the climate crisis, and these floods are no exception.
We need a government who is going to take the threat of the climate crisis seriously and respond accordingly. Solving the climate crisis is about more than cutting emissions. It’s about preparing our cities and towns for climate disasters like these floods. It’s about making sure our food, energy and transport infrastructure is ready for a warming world. It’s about making sure we can all live with dignity and justice.
A Climate Jobs Guarantee would solve the climate crisis, end unemployment and improve public services in our communities. Solving the climate crisis could be the best opportunity we’ve ever had to remake our society so that it works for the many, not just a greedy few.

The only way we take our democracy back from big business and win a Climate Jobs Guarantee is with a people power. Our movement is growing all over the country and we need you to be a part of it. The best place to start is with a Welcome Call, where you can learn about our plan to win and how to get involved.
