ICAN is a party of allied Independents from across the political spectrum bound by a commitment to delivering effective, scientific evidence-based policies to address the Climate Emergency. Science informs us that Climate Change is an existential threat to human society and life as we know it.
An emergency situation requires an emergency response.
It requires Climate Action Now!
SO WHAT IS THIS
Many people don’t realise that the threat posed by climate change is much more than some gradual increase in temperature and disruptive changes in weather patterns. Climate scientists now recognises a new class of threat that is beyond dangerous, more than catastrophic and is in fact ‘existential’.
To respond to the climate change threat as science tells us we must, requires that most of the worlds know fossil fuel reserves must be left in the ground. This represents trillions of dollars of suspended assets that the industry and ‘market’ is unwilling to forego. The economic value of these suspended assets has been behind a concerted campaign of science denial that started over 4o years ago and continues to this day.
Australia was an early world leader in the introduction of pricing mechanisms to reduce carbon emissions via the Clean Energy Act 2011AKA ‘the carbon tax’. During the two years that it operated before being repealed by fossil fuel interests, significant reduction in CO2 emissions were recorded. Carbon pricing works!!

We need your support for ICAN to be registered as a Party with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC). Joining ICAN is free.
If we can get 550 members to join by December 2018 we stand a chance of running in the next federal election. If we can get 2 or 3 people into the senate, we may be able to hold the balance of power and help guide policy toward protecting our children’s future.
