Ward off Climate Change

About the author

Gary Warden was raised in the Perth Hills. After graduating from the University of Western Australia with a degree in Geology, Gary joined BHP Billiton where he spent 18 years working in a variety of roles in a number of locations around the world. Prior to leaving BHP Billiton in December 2006, Gary was Global Manager for the company's US$1Billion business improvement program.

While he was originally sceptical about the claims relating to climate change, he became convinced of the urgency of the issue in early 2006. He left BHP Billiton primarily to spend more time with his young family, but also to dedicate himself to creating a more sustainable life for himself and his family and to support others in making that change.

In September 2007 he was trained by Al Gore and has delivered the "Inconvenient Truth" lectures to thousands of west australians since then. In November 2007 Gary ran for the senate in the Federal Election representing the Climate Change Coalition.

In addition to his climate change lectures, he has facilitated Living Smart workshops across Perth. Between 2008 and 2009 he was on the Executive Committee of the Conservation Council of Western Australia including one year as Vice President.

Gary co-founded and is Executive Director of the very exciting Days of Change program, one of the largest sustainability programs in Australia and is now General Manager WA for Eco-Kinetics, one of the largest Solar PV companies in Australia and subsidiary of ASX-listed CBD Energy.

We're Group 15 of 22 Groups on the Ballot Paper

by Gary 11/4/2007 6:22:00 AM

The double randomised draw of positions on the ballot paper occurred at 12 midday last Friday.

There are 54 candidates from 22 groups contesting the six senate seats available in Western Australia. 

The prized number one position (left-most on the ballot paper) went to the National Party.

We drew position number 15 which puts us in the right half of the ballot paper.

We will start printing the official How to Vote cards this week, however I have drafted up a card shown below.

For those interested in doing letter drops, it is these that we will be looking to deliver, plus a letter introducing the Climate Change Coalition.

On Election Day we will just be handing out How to Vote cards.
