SAMPLE LETTER

Dear

I am deeply concerned about the predicted consequences of climate change on the Earth Community. As an Australian citizen I believe that Australia should ratify the Kyoto Protocol in the lead-up to the World Summit on Sustainable Development to be held in Johannesburg in late August.

I urge you to make every effort to ensure that Australia assumes its international obligations in this regard and does not abandon the long process that is leading to the Kyoto Protocol becoming a legally enforceable international agreement.

Yours sincerely

YOUR NAME
YOUR ADDRESS
YOUR FEDERAL ELECTORATE
