Quick Climate Links: Learning about community energy; deeper into climate shame; road romance

Quick Climate Links: Learning about community energy; deeper into climate shame; road romance

Patagonia has put together a three-part series about the climate with Lucy Siegle telling the story via a podcast to energise the planet and people.

Meanwhile, The Guardian reports on a move by Australia's Federal Government which has even deepened the country's climate shame in the story "‘Vandals’: Victoria, Queensland fume over federal climate intervention".

Australia's States and Territories have been frustrated by newly invoked Federal Government policy that prohibits them from joining the "under 2 degrees" climate group.
