After thousands of Australians chipped in to Australia’s biggest crowd-funding campaign, the abolished Climate Commission has relaunched as the new, independent Climate Council.

We exist to provide independent, authoritative climate change information to the Australian public. Why? Because our response to climate change should be based on the best science available.

We’re a fast growing group of people made up of expert Councillors, staff, volunteers and supporters. Together we are doing everything we can to spread independent and accurate information on climate change.

Skeptical Science is a non-profit science education organisation, run by a global team of volunteers.

The goal of Skeptical Science is to explain what peer reviewed science has to say about global warming. When you peruse the many arguments of global warming skeptics, a pattern emerges. Skeptic arguments tend to focus on narrow pieces of the puzzle while neglecting the broader picture. For example, focus on Climategate emails neglects the full weight of scientific evidence for man-made global warming. Concentrating on a few growing glaciers ignores the world wide trend of accelerating glacier shrinkage. Claims of global cooling fail to realise the planet as a whole is still accumulating heat. This website presents the broader picture by explaining the peer reviewed scientific literature.

The Site includes rebutals and evidence for many

About the ProjectWhen Annie Leonard and her friends at Free Range Studios set out in 2007 to share what she’d learned about the way we make, use and throw away Stuff, they thought 50,000 views would be a good result for her ‘20-minute cartoon about trash.’ Today, with over 15 million views and counting, The Story of Stuff is one of the most watched environmental-themed online movies of all time.

Annie founded the non-profit Story of Stuff Project in 2008 to respond to tens of thousands of viewer requests for more information and ways to get involved. We create short, easily shareable online movies that explore some of the key features of our relationship with Stuff—including how we can make things better; we provide high quality educational resources and programs to everyone from teachers and people of faith to business and community leaders; and we support the learning and action of the over 350,000 members of the Story of Stuff community.

The Story of Stuff Project is proud to be fiscally sponsored by San Francisco’s Tides Center. We are supported by grants from private and public foundations, revenue from speaking appearances and DVD and book sales, and contributions from people like you.

Please help us keep our films and other content free by making a secure, tax-deductible on-line contribution today.

Project Australia >> Start, scale and sustain community projects

Harnessed fully, there are more talents and resources within any small group of passionate citizens than are actually needed to manifest deep social change.

Project Australia is a not-for-profit organisation helping people start, scale and sustain community projects across 12 theme areas. We provide inspiration, resources, processes and advice to help people put their ideas into action.

We are a progressive social enterprise, free from political or religious influence, founded in 2006 by a young social innovator, Donnie Maclurcan. Any profits we make go back into the services we deliver. We have grown thanks to unconditional donations, fundraising events, merchandise sales, revenue from our youth speakers’ bureau and the hard work of more than 200 volunteers since we began. Our budget for 2012-13 is $30,000.

Our team currently includes a one-day per week Executive Director, ten volunteers and five committee members. We operate out of Sydney, but our team and work is national.

Rather than talk about the problems, we seek to “do something” by building alliances between businesses, government and the community. We identify problems and then find answers that achieve measurable benefits for the environment and our community.

As part of our work, we campaign on environmental and social issues. Sometimes on our own, but more often in partnership with others. See our Campaigns section on this website for more detail on our work.

Who’s behind ‘Do Something’?

‘Do Something’ was established by Planet Ark founders Jon Dee and Pat Cash in association with Tina Jackson, former Executive Director of the National Trust of Australia.
