“Without the support of Climate 200 it would have been very difficult for us to have the audacity to take on the Treasurer of Australia in the bluest of blue ribbon seats.

And, while our campaign budget was always dwarfed by the massive war chest amassed by our opponents, the support of Climate 200 made it possible for us to run a sophisticated digital advertising campaign, which in the end may well have made the difference between a win and a loss."
