Another climate strike was staged in Armidale's Central Park on Friday morning, and this time about 400 people walked to the front of the Member for Northern Tablelands electorate office.
One of the event organisers Helen Webb said she believed Mr Marshall had the well-being of his electorate at at heart.
"I think he has a challenging job because he has strong lobbyists pushing him for the use of fossil fuels in his electorate," she said.
"He's also had pressure to change land clearing laws to allow widespread clearing. That has increased emissions and reduced the storage of carbon.
"There's also evidence of things the State Government is trying to do in a positive sense."
Ms Webb said that although there were government responses, we were already seeing that just one degree of warming was too hot.
"Already we have disasters occurring on our reef, oceans rising, Pacific islands going under water," she said.
"Within our community, we're facing a countdown to the time when we will run out of water.
"I've got a government document about risk management. It shows a list of catastrophic risk; running out of water, businesses not having water, people not being able to sell houses - all of those things we could be facing."
Ms Webb said it was such an interesting time because we were all being called to "step up".
"In this emergency that we're facing, the urgency of need to act is crucial, and the human ability to respond to that urgency is in question," she said.
"This planet is capable of being eight degrees hotter, or more, and we're not going to be able to live on it if it is. We could be heading in that direction unless we make the changes that are needed."
TheMember the for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall was visiting bushfire victims at Lower Creek at the time of the protest.
He agreed the climate was definitely changing.
"Longer and deeper dry spells and droughts, which create an environment conducive to large-scale bushfires, and more extremes in our weather patterns is something we have to tackle and plan for together - all three levels of government and our communities," he said.
"You'd struggle to find a more passionate advocate for renewables than me in the State Parliament, let alone the NSW Government," he said.
"I am very proud that our region is now on the cusp of generating more energy via renewables than we collectedly consume, hence why we are one of only three designated renewables zones in the State.
"We are leading the way and setting an example for other parts of Australia. We are punching well above our weight and helping the State meet its ambitious climate change and zero net emissions targets."
