A big audience turned out tonight on a cold and rainy night in Canberra to hear the Labor Party and Greens Senate candidates speak on climate change. Apparently, Liberal Party Senator Gary Humphries was sick and so couldn't make it.

Candidates Senator Kate Lundy (Labor) and Lin Hatfield-Dodds (Greens) comprehensively explained their respective Party's climate change policy and action to date, and many members of the audience lined up to ask questions afterwards. There was even a question from the “elephant in the room” whose photo has been captured below for posterity.

This successful “Vote Climate” event was ably organised by Climate Action Canberra together with the Australia Institute, Canberra Environment and Sustainability Resource Centre, Conservation Council and SEE-Change.

There were tons of people at the Get Up! ACT Senate Candidate Forum this afternoon. What a great turnout!

Kate Lundy (Labor), Lin Hatfield Dodds (Greens) and Gary Humphries (Liberal) all presented their parties' policies on mental health, refugee and climate change issues, and then answered questions.

Can you spot the elephant in the room in the audience below?

I just had a look at the Climate Institute website and they have a Pollute-o-Meter that assesses the climate change policies of each political party as Australia heads for the federal election this Saturday.

See the Pollute-o-Meter here

The Australian Conservation Council has also prepared an election scorecard for the 2010 federal election and you can find it here.
