Quick news: David Pocock picks up the climate ball and runs with it

David Pocock (pictured), the former captain of the Australian Wallabies, along with his wife, Emma, has set up the "Cool Down" program that calls on the Australian Government to do more on tackling climate change.

Pocock was interviewed on Monday, August 30, on RN Breakfast by the host of the show, Fran Kelly.

Guardian reporter, Gabrielle Chan, has long championed Australia's farmers and has done that again in her latest story - "Farmers manage more than half of Australia. We all have a stake in them getting it right";

National Geographic writes about a species threatened by global warming - "This adorable rabbit relative sounds an alarm for global warming";

The New York Times keeps us up to date with what's happening with Hurricane Ida - "The storm made landfall on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina";

And the Melbourne Age points to a poll that revealed that Australians want action on climate change - "Australia’s biggest climate poll shows support for action in every seat";

The Guardian reports - "Floating wind turbines could open up vast ocean tracts for renewable power";

And on The Conversation we read - "Bushfire survivors just won a crucial case against the NSW environmental watchdog, putting other states on notice";

Again from The Guardian, Jillian Ambrose reports - "North Sea oil was battered by Covid, but now faces much deadlier waves";
