Quick Climate Links: Tackling disinformation; Rolls-Royce's electric plane; bold action; emissions cut remain elusive

Hayley Purbrick (pictured) has, along with her family, moved the Nagambie Tahbilk Winery well down the path toward being carbon neutral.

You can hear Hayley talk about what is happening with the winery in its bid to become carbon neutral in this Radio National Country Breakfast story.

More about Tahbilk Winery can be discovered from the ABC story: "Historic Victorian winery on track to be carbon neutral without offsets by 2025";

Another story telling us more about the Nagambie winery: "Nagambie podcast ‘rockstar’: Hayley Purbrick";

Finally, we learn more about the winery at "The story of Tahbilk Winery begins with the land and the river".
