David Pocock is known to many of us as the Wallabies captain but how many of us know of him as a student of the Bachelor of Ecological Agriculture?
David has seen the light on the importance of an ecological approach to farming, and on the issue to do with climate change.
National Day of Climate Action
Sunday, 17th November, 2013
Take a look at the attached 30 second video, share this post far and wide and if you can help please do.
A personal request from David Pocock:
Instead of rising to the challenge and tackling climate change head-on, our government has turned this critical issue into a political football.
That’s why this Sunday I’ll be joining tens of thousands of Australians in demanding we step up and do better.
Check out this 30 second video and feel free to share it.
Will you help make Sunday the largest show of climate support our country has ever seen?
Australia is the largest polluter per capita of any nation in the world, and right now – as scientists are telling us we should be stepping up our game – our government is getting ready to sit it out.
This Sunday, November 17, I’ll be joining tens of thousands of Australians in over a hundred locations around the country… have you RSVPd for yours yet?
By turning up on Sunday – in communities big and small – we can show our government just how many of us across Australia want meaningful action on climate change. We can make them think twice about their plans.
Will you join me on Sunday?

Since David and and Dr Karl produced videos to drum up support for Australia’s National Day of Climate Action, we have witnessed the catastrophe – typhoon Haiyan.
Chief negotiator for the Philippines, Yeb Sano, drew tears, hairs on end and a standing ovation with his impassioned pleas for international cooperation on climate action at the UN climate talks in Warsaw yesterday. His plea is succinct:
What my country is going through as a result of this extreme climate event is madness. The climate crisis is madness. We can stop this madness.
Will you help?
