Quick Climate Links: Greta Thunberg; Zali Steggall; Mik Aidt - climate champions

Swedish teenager, Greta Thunberg (pictured) has been one of the most important personalities in the worldwide climate conversation and features here in a New York Times short film clip - "Greta Thunberg Has Given Up on Politicians".

Here in Australia, we have many climate champions, no more than the Independent Member for Warringah, Zali Steggall, who again took her Climate Change Bill to parliament calling for a debate on the topic - "Zali Steggall moves to bring the Climate Change Bills on for Debate".

Another of our climate champions is Geelong's Mik Aidt who is a key player in "The Sustainable Hour".
