Quick Climate Links: John Pettigrew on climate floods in Nicholls; Struggle for the Seat of NIcholls heats up; Nicholls the worst affected electorate in Australia

President of the Goulburn Valley Environment Group, John Pettigrew (pictured), argues for leadership to help Australians navigate the climate crisis.

Mr Pettigrew was interviewed by the ABC about the flooding in Nicholls and the fact that some 25% of homes in Shepparton will be uninsurable in the story - "Climate Council finds 25pc of homes in Nicholls electorate will be uninsurable by 2030 as flood risk climbs".

And Nicholls remains in the news via the "Full Story" podcast from The Guardian.
