Quick Climate  Links: Damon Gameau wants us to set about 'Regenerating Australia'

The movie, the short by truly effective movie, "Regenerating Australia" came to Shepparton last night (March 11) and was watched and enjoyed by about 50 people.

The ABC's 'stats man' Casey Briggs helped people understand more about Australia's recent rains and floods through the story "Understanding the rare weather event that's flooded eastern Australia".

And Yale's Climate Connections talks about "How a coal town is preparing for a future without coal".
