Quick Climate Links: Finding success in a 'waste of time'; CO2 at highest level in recorded human history; Huge resistance to Viva Gas plan at Geelong

Finding success in failure can be little more than a "mind trick" or it can be a reality - my visit to the Echuca Moama Market on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 8, was in terms of recording interviews for this podcast, was unquestionably a failure, but for me, it was a success.

This podcast is about keeping people abreast of climate change and helping them understand how they should respond  and that idea  was given exposure to people who, in many cases, had not thought much about our changing climate or its implications.

It was five hours, well spent.

The Independent newspaper tells us that "Earth’s CO2 hits highest recorded level in human history".

Huge resistance to Geelong gas terminal: "More than 2,000 submissions made on proposed Viva Energy LNG terminal in Geelong".
