Quick Climate Links: weighty topics; Code Red; meat eating  men; new wave of extinctions

It's difficult to take a light-hearted view of climate change but the "Comedians Conquering Climate Change" do just that.

The challenge of discussing the weighty topic of climate change with friends and family can be daunting, especially during the Christmas/New Year holiday period, but Yale Climate Connections has some advice on how you go about that.

Jo Dodds is the leader of the Bushfire Survivors for Climate Action and as a result of personal experience is a supporter of the Envoronmibnetal Defenders Office.
