Podcast: Green Nation – The Fight Against Climate Change
Tuesday, 22nd November 2016 at 11:57 am

Climate change has been described as the most difficult problem human society has ever faced. But in the face of influential vested interests and governments that seem slow to respond, the social sector plays a vital role.

Global warming is happening now from the bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef to bushfires to the mega-storm that caused a blackout across South Australia.

Leading scientists say there is no time to waste in saving the planet.

But Australia’s carbon footprint is anything but insignificant. We’re the world’s largest coal exporter, one of the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters, and the largest emitter per person of any country in the developed world.

In The Fight Against Climate Change, the first episode of the Green Nation three-part series, Not for Podcast investigates the importance of civil society in agitating for change.

Featured in this episode:

  • Professor Will Steffen, climate change expert and researcher at the ANU, and a councilor at the Climate Council of Australia
  • Anika Molesworth, a farmer and climate change advocate currently undertaking a PhD in sustainable agriculture
  • Sara Bice, socio-political commentator from the University of Melbourne
  • Victoria McKenzie-McHarg, Australian Conservation Foundation climate change campaign manager, and the director of the board for the Climate Action Network Australia
  • Adam Black, senior campaigner on the Environmental Justice team for Get Up.
