Power lunchers Tim Flannery and Margaret Fulton mobilise the little people:

Our culinary correspondent Keith Austin, who wrote about the duo for yesterday’s Good Living section, tells us Margaret Fulton and Tim Flannery came up with the “Three Phone Calls” campaign in response to Fulton’s desire to do something about global warming.

The idea, explained Flannery, is simple: “The first phone call is to your local parliamentarian to ask ‘what’s your policy, what are you going to do?’ And tell them point blank, if it’s not good enough, that you’ll actively work against them. The next two phone calls are to two friends who might be sympathetic, to get them to do the same thing.”

Fulton, a long-time supporter of Greenpeace, says it’s a move that would help what she calls “the little people” to make a difference.

Hit the phones, midgets! The spirit of Margo’s people’s court lives!
