I like the idea of a promise tracker listed in the comments section. We need one here so our newly elected Councilors’ can be kept on track by the electors.

We’re going back to court.
On behalf of all Australians passionate about our reef, we just lodged our appeal on the Federal Court’s decision to rule against our case challenging approval of Adani’s giant Carmichael coal mine.
Like you, we don’t accept that our Federal Environment Minister has the right to ignore the impact 4.6 billion tonnes of climate pollution will have on our Great Barrier Reef, just because it’s too hard to measure.
It’s absurd. And we must take a stand. That’s why we’re going back to court.
One of our most generous donors has agreed to match every dollar donated to this appeal up to $35,000, effectively doubling every dollar given.
Make no mistake, Adani’s Carmichael mine proposal is massive. It will lock in decades of dangerous climate pollution – further damaging the reef and threatening all living things.
If this coal mine goes ahead it will be the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere. It is one of a handful of projects that currently threaten life on Earth – along with the Canadian tar sands, deep water oil mining in Brazil, and oil drilling in the Arctic.
