This is a guest episode from the Books, Books, Books podcast Rebecca Huntley on looking your children in the eye, managing eco-anxiety, and how to use emotions such as guilt, anger, fear and hope to change hearts as well as minds in the climate change debate. Rebecca Huntley is one of Australia's most experienced social researchers and former director of The Mind and Mood Report, the longest running measure of the nation's attitudes and trends. She holds degrees in law and film studies and a PhD in gender studies, and is a mum to three young children. It was realising she is part of the problem older generation that caused her change of heart and to dedicate herself to researching our attitudes to climate change. She is a member of Al Gore's Climate Reality Corps, carries out social research for NGOs such as The Wilderness Society and WWF, and writes and presents for the ABC. This is her sixth book. A toolkit for understanding our emotional responses to climate change and how we can have meaningful conversations across dividing lines. 'The antidote to climate anxiety is action. Make your first action reading this book.'Osher Gunsberg'Rebecca Huntley has given us a great gift: an essential guide to understanding ourselves and each other as we face the climate crisis. Let's take down the walls that divide us. Collectively, with compassion and courage, we can make real change happen.'Kylie Kwong'Explains whether and how we will choose to solve the climate problem. Immensely important analysis in a great read.'Professor Ross GarnautWhy is it so hard to talk about climate change?While scientists double down on the shocking figures, we still find ourselves unable to discuss climate change meaningfully among friends and neighbours - or even to grapple with it ourselves.The key to progress on climate change is in the psychology of human attitudes and our ability to change. Whether you're already alarmed and engaged with the issue, concerned but disengaged, a passive skeptic or an active denier, understanding our emotional reactions to climate change - why it makes us anxious, fearful, angry or detached - is critical to coping on an individual level and convincing each other to act.This book is about understanding why people who aren't like you feel the way they do and learning to talk to them effectively. What we need are thousands - millions - of everyday conversations about the climate to enlarge the ranks of the concerned, engage the disengaged and persuade the cautious of the need for action.Support the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This is an episode of Climactic Candid, honest talks with climate engaged people from across society. I'm Mark Spencer, publisher of the Climactic Collective Podcast Network. My guest for this episode is entrepreneur Sara Bell. Sara Bell founded AMPLIFY in the belief that conscious consumers have the power to generate the pressure points needed to drive rapid change before 2030. The companies whose business models cause climate change have too much vested in the status quo to change willingly. Yet with no customers, these companies would face falling revenues and business failure so the option will be to change or fail. Sara spent four years legally challenging a £5.6 billion fossil fuel subsidy in the European Court as CEO of an energy tech company in London. She won, marking a massive career high. Sadly, the win was temporary as the UK government and EU Commission unlawfully reintroduced the scheme. The fight continues, but the process has convinced Sara that with the clock ticking rapidly, we can no longer rely on incremental change. The stories we tell about the future and how to get there have to change for this to happen.  Mark and Sara talk about the Tempus lawsuit, the fight she won with the UK Gov't and European Council, demand response in the power industry, conscious consumerism and the power of personal purchasing.  Links:  www.amplifybyample.com Sara in RenewEconomy  Support the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In 2019 close to a thousand people gathered in Brisbane for a Climate Reality Leadership Corps training.

THE GAS FALLACY: why we need a renewable led recovery for our climate, health and economy Event description Drought, floods and the recent catastrophic bushfires have brought home the reality of the climate crisis to Australia - the burning of fossil fuels is destroying our world. The Covid caused recession creates an opportunity to transition rapidly to renewables as part of economic recovery, but the federal government maintains a gas-led approach to recovery is necessary. This is despite the fact that gas produces unacceptably high greenhouse emissions and that renewables are cheaper than fossil fuels, and better for the economy, environment, climate and our health. Port Phillip Emergency Climate Action Network (PECAN), Glen Eira Emergency Climate Action Network (GECAN) and Bayside Emergency Climate Action Network (BECAN) are bringing together key experts to help us understand the proposal for a so called gas-led recovery, and how an alternative renewable led recovery would work. This forum is supported by many other climate action groups throughout Melbourne’s South East, from Melbourne Central to Western Port Bay and The Mornington Peninsula. The Panel Professor Penny Sackett is Professor at the Climate Change Institute, ANU and was previously Australia's Chief Scientist. She will speak about the impact of plans for gas expansion on greenhouse gas emissions and the climate. Dr George Crisp, a GP and Committee Member, Doctors for the Environment, will speak on the less well known effects of gas on people’s health. Mark Ogge, Principal Advisor and gas expert at the Australia Institute will speak on The National COVID Coordinating Commission’s plans as well as the renewable alternatives to gas. The webinar will be moderated by Esther Abram, Consultant and Strategic Advisor at Estuary Resources and formerly the inaugural CEO at the Moreland Energy Foundation and Director of Environment Victoria. The Issues The speakers at the webinar will cover these questions:  What impact will plans for gas expansion have on greenhouse gas emissions and on the climate? What impact would it have on people’s health?  Why is the Australian government supporting this gas expansion? Do we actually need more gas?  Can the transition to renewables be achieved without gas? Why this Webinar? This important webinar will give us all the opportunity to learn more about gas and its impacts, and the government’s plans. It will also be an opportunity to make our voices heard to our parliamentary representatives before the federal budget, on 6 October. Many of Melbourne’s south east federal seats are held by Commonwealth Government members– some being key ministers. A Call to Action Climate For Change will be present to guide participants to engage with their local MPs through a letter writing activity. Our voices combined, can matter. Readings We have put together a list of readings on the potential impacts of the proposed gas recovery on our climate, health and economy to help inform us before the webinar.  Access the readings at: http://pecan.org.au/readings/Support the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On the weekly flagship feed of the Climactic Collective, this week an episode of the Sustainable You Podcast. This week there's been multiple new episodes of shows on the network - check them all out at www.climactic.com.au.  There are tons of easy swaps that we can make in our lives to be more environmentally friendly. Waste is a crucial problem for today’s environment, but there are plenty of eco-friendly substitutes for single-use products that we use every day. Lisa and Jacqui troubleshoot some ways to help you focus on reusing products again, rather than using them once and then sending them to landfill. Remember there is no such thing as throwing plastic ‘away.’ Have you got any others to add to our list? Sustainable You can be found on Facebook, Instagram, and sign up to our mailing list for bonus material through our website.

This episode features an episode of Catastrophic, the tales of the Australian bushfires from the 2019/2020 summer. But first, it contains a message about the August 2020 wildfires in California, and the relevance to Australia.  Why is this relevant? Because California is going through a transformation of their energy system, and the transition to renewables is being blamed in some quarters for the failure and blackouts wracking California. But it has been poor management and mistakes that have caused this, and in a time when governance here in Australia is under the microscope, we cannot afford to allow mismanagement or poor planning hide behind greenbashing, like we’re seeing in the US.  Links from the intro:https://www.overshootday.org/ https://www.climactic.com.au/show/climactic/bze-the-million-jobs-plan-public-launch-podcast-adaptation/ Shownotes from Catastrophic | Zoe Pook Zoe Pook and her family live in Cobargo, NSW. She was travelling with her 2 children to Adelaide for a wedding when the firewall hit Cobargo and incinerated much of the town. Her husband, a volunteer firefighter, stayed to battle the fire and save their house. He is one of our nation's heroes. Fortunately he survived. Unfortunately, like many others in Cobargo that day, they lost everything. This is Zoe's story. Catastrophic is a dual podcast and political protest.Catastrophic tells the tales of the Australian bushfires and calls for political action around Climate Change. Every story we gather, every episode we release, of the Catastrophic podcast is being sent in a protest letter to over 100 politicians and members of the media, every week.These are our demands for effective Climate Action: No new coal, oil and gas projects, including the Adani mine and the Wallarah 2 coal project. 100% renewable energy generation & exports by 2030 Fund a just transition & job creation for all fossil-fuel workers & communities. Hand over land conservation management to First Nations Australians Start preserving our water and treating it as a precious resource not a commodity. @CatastrophicPod info@listenuppodcasting.com.auIf you or anyone you know has a story they would like to share from or about the Aussie bushfires please instant message us via the Catastrophic Podcast Facebook page or email us at and we will get in touch to record your story.SHOW NOTES: Catastrophic Facebook @CatastrophicPodListen Up Podcasting - www.listenuppodcasting.com.au Facebook - @ListenUpPodcastingKel Butler - Facebook and Twitter @KelButler  Support the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
One guest - two interviews. Jimmy Halfcut has been engaged in activism, organising, and fundraising for many years. Mark and Seán, hosts of two shows on the Climactic Collective, had back to back chats with Jimmy about the story of Halfcut, and the lessons he learnt on the way to finding the formulae to their success. Having a laugh, letting people have fun while engaging with serious topics like deforestation, and visual disruption all factor into the formula.  Hear more chats with folks Mark and Eav find interesting on Serially Curious.  Tune into Growing Concern, where Seán Marsh sands back the greenwash on dirty industries, discuss brand strategy for ethical organisations and learns from inspiring individuals. And sign up to get Halfcut, form a team with your friends, and help save a slice of the Daintree Rainforest. Listen to James at a panel from the National Climate Emergency Summit: on ENDING FOSSIL FUELS.  Support the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Dr Joëlle Gergis is an award-winning Australian climate scientist and writer, currently teaching at the Australian National University.  She’s the author of the book “The Sunburnt Country. The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia”. Joëlle is also one of the dozen or so Australian lead authors working on the IPCC’s upcoming 6th assessment  - in addition to her full-time teaching load.  The results of the refined climate models that she and her fellow scientists are working on terrify her.   While the final IPCC report won’t be published until 2022, the results are available now – and they’re terrifying. She wakes up in the middle of the night with terrifying dreams of tsunamis. She’s been brave enough, and honest enough to share publicly exactly what terrifies her and why. In this podcast she reads aloud her piece in The Monthly -  “Witnessing the Unthinkable”. Thanks to the State Library of Victoria, we can also share her launch speech for “Sunburnt Country” in 2018, which Tim Flannery calls  “a marvelous investigation of Australia's climate, and how we are affecting it”.

Our thanks to the team for allowing us to share it with you.  Also, we're announcing two new shows on the Climactic Collective. thEMPOWER and Sustainable You. Check out all the shows on the network at www.climactic.com.au. CLIMATE CRISIS FRONTLINES Episode 1- BANGLADESH 13th July 2020 Guests: Runa Khan - Founder of "Friendship" floating hospitals in Bagladesh https://friendship.ngo/floods-in-bangladesh-and-friendships-response/ https://friendship.ngo/about-us/leadership/runa-khan-founder-and-executive-director/ Dr Saleemul Huq - Scientist and Director of International Centre for Climate Change and Development https://www.iied.org/climate-covid-19-collaboration-we-need Sound Effects: by Maqubul from Freesound "Be prepared" is the message from Bangladesh. Runa Khan describes the thousand rivers and silt islands in her country. She says  saving lives is not enough.  Her floating hospitals have expanded into schools in the refugee camps, paralegal help, para-veterinary help and training people to maintain the solar panels that connect them to government services. The secret of a long lasting project like this is treating everyone with dignity. It is thrilling to hear how Runa imbues her volunteers and staff with a deep respect for human rights. She speaks to European donors in the same way, wanting their empathy and understanding in a sustained partnership rather than just a guilty cheque. She says seeing the Rohingya refugee camps nearly broke her but she is undaunted. This is one of our best podcasts and should be a tonic for anyone feeling climate angst or despair. The motto of "Friendship" is "Think big, start small, begin now!". Dr Saleemul Huq spoke to an international audience about "Climate, Covid19 and the collaboration we need." He described how the recent Cyclone Amphan was supercharged by the elevated temperatures in the Bay of Bengal. It caused damage in the Sundarban Forests and over two million people were evacuated to safety with their lifestock. But his pride is in the fact that the death toll was low. Compared to the 140,000 killed in the 1990's, Bangladesh is now a model of early warnings and adaptation. The millions of volunteers who go around with loud speakers in the villages, warning of a climate emergency, now go round wearing face masks and giving a Covidsafe health message.  "Be prepared!" Dr Huq says that Covid19 is a rehearsal for the great climate crisis which will affect all of us. He says governments and businesses who refuse to listen to scientists are acting unconscionably. Just as the pandemic crosses all borders so does the climate disruption we cause by our emissions. Listening to these two compassionate and energetic Bangladeshis will remind you of the moral vision of Martin Luther King. When I read  that Global Fossil Fuel Subsidies are currently $5.2 Trillion and $29 Billion in Australia according to the IMF, I understand why the climate frontline states demand justice. https://reneweconomy.com.au/global-fossil-fuel-subsidies-reach-5-2-trillion-and-29-billion-in-australia-91592/ As well as sending a cheque in a crisis and reconnecting with the Green bank, we need to understand and empathise with the suffering caused by the emissions our government is subsidising. This podcast might awaken some so please forward it to those who need to hear.  Support the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Thanks for joining us for this bonus episode. My name’s Mark, and when I’m not publishing Climactic, and helping out in the Climactic Collective, I work in the podcasting industry. That's how I know the great team at Soundcartel. They've allowed us to share this episode of their new program Business Essentials Daily, this short, sweet, and in plain business English interview with Anna Skarbek of the thinktank Climate Works, on how businesses taking action on climate change isn’t just the right thing, it’s the financially sound thing. For some business owners the environment might be the last thing you’re considering as you navigate operations through the pandemic. With visible improvement in water and air across the globe during COVID-19 it’s an image we can have in the future if we begin to rebuild with climate in mind. The best part is that the solutions are accessible, available and won’t break the bank. Anna Skarbek is CEO of ClimateWorks Australia, a non-profit think-tank and advisory body helping bridge the gap between climate research and action, so not just talking about the numbers and data but working through policy to get the job done. And what’s the goal? Net zero emissions by 2050.

Simon Moore, a climate activist and science communicator, brings us another dispatch from Leeds in England. As a contributor to Climactic, he’s told stories of Extinction Rebellion protests, community activist groups and the first UK Climate Change Citizens’ Jury.    In this episode Simon discusses the boundary between activism and academia with Professor Julia Steinberger from the University of Leeds.   Julia Steinberger is an IPCC lead author and Professor of Ecological Economics. She studies the relationship between the use of resources (such as fossil fuels) and the performance of societies.   Simon and Julia talk about the role of scientists in our society, how researching and publishing the facts may not be enough in the face of climate crisis, and how being an outspoken academic has affected Julia's career in science.   Image credit: Saphie Coffey-BrittainSupport the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
On June 29 2020, Beyond Zero Emissions launched The Million Jobs Plan. The launch included a stellar line up including Christiana Figueres and Mike Cannon-Brookes. You can watch the webinar launch here. Climactic has adapted the event to audio, by shortening and producing the webinar recording into a version you can enjoy over headphones.  The Million Jobs Plan is the framework to restore our economy. We’ve mapped out how we can rebuild our nation through practical projects that can restore our economy, modernise our industry, reskill our workforce and deliver a bright and secure economic future We’ve identified seven key sectors across our economy where strategic investment over the next five years would have the most impact and create the most jobs, including Energy Building Manufacturing Transport Recycling Land Use Training Jobs will be distributed around Australia, including in cities and regions already under pressure from the closure of traditional heavy industry and manufacturing, historical droughts and fires, and high unemployment. The next stage of this project will include shortlisting of several priority projects across Australia that we will present to the government over the coming months, along with the private investors and partnerships needed to realise these projects, create good, secure jobs and kick our economy back into gear.

This episode is an adaptation of the launch event for the People's Climate Strategy, held by Act on Climate on June 3rd. Friends of the Earth Melbourne's Act on Climate collective officially launched its push to write a People's Climate Strategy for Victoria with over one thousand people watching the online launch via Zoom and Facebook live. The strong level of interest is a vote of confidence in the idea.Writing a People's Climate Strategy for Victoria to present to the Andrews government later this year is a bold and ambitious undertaking. But shaping the state's first climate strategy is an opportunity that can't be missed.The Victorian government is required to prepare and rollout a climate strategy every five years out to 2050. Our efforts in coming months will influence the Labor government's own plan (which must be prepared by October 31) as well as all those that follow it.   Stay informed about the People's Climate Strategy by following Act on Climate https://www.actonclimate.org.au/ https://www.facebook.com/ActOnClimateVic Get in touch if you've got an event happening that would make a great audio adaptation, or if you're otherwise interested in podcasting/climate engagement.  hello@climactic.fmSupport the show: https://www.climactic.com.au/p/support-the-collective/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Climactic Collective is thrilled to be able to bring you this special feature, an audio documentary from Jess Fairfax - https://www.jessfairfax.com/ TO FEED TWO BIRDS WITH ONE SCONE An audio documentary by Jess Fairfax Over the past year or so, I have found inspiration in the work of Michel Foucault, who believes in the power of discourse as both “an instrument and an effect of power, but also a hindrance, a stumbling point of resistance and a starting point for an opposing strategy” (Foucault 1998). The dominant discourse our government upholds, preserves an economy powered by fossil fuels, despite the known impacts of global warming. With business as usual brought to a standstill due to COVID-19, and the government looking for ways to stimulate the economy, I felt an urgent need to amplify alternative discourses that point towards a new low carbon economy. Within this documentary you will hear from researchers, farmers and representatives from unions, investor groups and worker cooperatives about the environmental, social and economic impact of climate change and the solutions at hand. The piece also considers how we might shift the way we think of ourselves from consumers to citizens, part of, not separate from, the environment.  Orr (1994) states that we must shift our current paradigm to one that “places us in the web of life as citizens of the biotic community”. Within the piece, I addressed this through using field recordings from various Australian ecosystems as background to the dialogue. I also believe music is an incredibly powerful medium and I composed the soundtrack as a way to bring beauty to conversations around the economy and energy systems. I wove stories my friends told me about their time outdoors during lockdown into the piece. I believe that isolation has instilled a great appreciation in many people of the value of green space for our mental and physical health. I hope this translates into citizen action around the need to preserve and care for the environment. This piece is just the beginning and I encourage feedback, comments, communication, ideas, criticisms and importantly conversations. It is here that the power should be.
