The Citizens Climate Lobby of Australia has met with Member for Hume Angus Taylor to raise concerns about climate change.
The group is part of an international organisation, who operate at a grassroots level to inform people about climate change, and hopefully create enough political will for the issue to be taken seriously by politicians.
"It was a productive meeting," member Ian Anderson said.
"The expansion of his portfolio to include emissions is very critical from our perspective. We see him as a key person in the government and we see climate change as the number one agenda.
"Without having a place to live, the rest of the government's policies don't matter that much."
"Mr Taylor said he has no time for rhetoric and we would agree with him on that, but we would like to see our government have a more urgent agenda to deal with climate change."
They will have a follow-up meeting with him.
Meanwhile, they are facilitating a session on Carbon Sequestration by Susan Orgill on August 1 at the Goulburn Soldiers Club from 7-9pm.
"Dr Orgill is a specialist in soil and this session is for farmers who want to know more about managing and reducing carbon," he said.
