Quick Climate Links: How much meat do we eat?; culture before coal; plankton moves moutains

Wangan and Jagalingou Cultural Custodians have been holding an ongoing ceremony at the gates of Adani’s coal mine for more than 100 days now. "We aren't going anywhere", they say.

They believe we should be putting "culture before coal".

The goal of achieving net zero by 2050 was recently discussed on Nightlife on Radio National - "Getting to net Zero".
