GetUp's Response to 'Fuel Watch' NEWS THIS WEEK: Aussie Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has created 'FuelWatch' to let citizens know where the cheaper petrol can be found daily... but activist organization GetUp thinks this is a woftam... saying:
"The bowser wowsers in Parliament House want to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic rather than address the real long-term solutions to rising petrol prices."
Warning: the following video contains swearing...
'Fuel prices' - a phrase we're bound to hear more and more of. But what the pollies aren't talking about is that we're running out of cheap oil - we need to be investing in real solutions, not rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
That's why we've made this new ad to cut through the oil slick - watch it here and get the nation talking about the real solutions:
Two weeks ago, thousands of us wrote to our MPs asking for real solutions: investment in public transport, more efficient cars, and for transport to be included in the emissions trading scheme.
But still our politicians tinker around the edges. Politicians can't change the price of petrol. But they can have the courage to implement long-term transport solutions. View this ad and push our politicians to resist short-term petrol populism and invest in real solutions:
