In the media

The Daily Telegraph

"About 10,000 Australians have so far donated $9m to Climate 200, which is partly funding 22 candidates for the House of Representatives and Senate. The campaigns are centred on NSW and Victoria, with two seats in South Australia - and none in Queensland or the Northern Territory.

Kylea Tink said donations from Climate 200 were about 35 per cent of the $1.1m she had raised for her quest to unseat Liberal Trent Zimmerman in North Sydney.

Monique Ryan, taking on Treasurer Josh Frydenberg in Kooyong, said the group had provided “less than a third” of the $1.2m raised for her campaign. And Jo Dyer, contesting the marginal seat of Boothby vacated by Liberal Nicolle Flint, said she had received $20,000 from Climate 200.

Mr Holmes à Court said seven candidates supported by Climate 200 “are within spitting distance of a win” and others would “take safe seats marginal”.

Ms Dyer said the accusation that Climate 200 independents were a political party was “a line being pushed by the government because they are absolutely terrified that they are going to lose some seats in their heartland”.

“And they will lose their seats, because they have failed to take action on some of the issues that are most critical to the people in those electorates,” she said."
