A small but committed group of concerned residents have again gathered outside the Dubbo office of federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton and called on the federal government to do more to deal with climate change.
Noni Kuhner organised a protest last month about similar issues and she said the gathering held last Friday was different because the 12 attendees shared stories and talked about their concerns.
"There was one young lady there who lives on a farm and she said that her dad is pulling branches off trees to feed the stock because there's no grass anymore," Ms Kuhner said.
"There was one lady who said she's not going to have kids at this point in time because she is terrified of what's going to happen in terms of bringing them into the world and leaving a completely changed, un-liveable world behind for the child to live through."
Ms Kuhner said while she expected criticism from some community members who may not understand what climate change means or that humans make it worse - the negative feedback wasn't something she took personally.
"Bushfires have always happened, floods have always happened but they're getting worse," she said.
"It's not just me being angry based on people ignoring science... it's personal.
"I had family members who lost their house on the South Coast on New Year's Eve.
"That was when it got personal. I've got other family members who have their house under threat."
Ms Kuhner said she hoped to organise further climate demonstrations in Dubbo and that despite the presence of signage promoting the Greens, the demonstrations had no links to any political party.
