Nigel Topping - UK Climate Champion - At the Global race to zero conference organised by the Smart Energy Council. "Australia is confusing everyone.... you are in a great position to benefit from the race to zero. It's very serious..... It's not just an environmental race... it's an industrial race."
Professor Johan Rockstrom - Director of research at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. "Irreversible changes are ahead... To reach Net Zero we must maintain land and ocean sinks. Agriculture must transition from emitter to sink... This is the Nature/Climate COP... Media has a huge responsibility for the mismatch between what citizens demand and what Governments are doing"

Dr Anika Molesworth - Farmers for Climate Action - marvellous description of her country in Western NSW. She says indigenous people are suffering loss and grief. "They remember metre long cod in sparkling water. We must get that back.
Alok Sharma - President of COP 26 in Glasgow- Exclusive press briefing to Covering Climate Now.
"What we’re trying to achieve at Glasgow is, in many ways, harder than Paris… After six years, we still have some of the most difficult questions to answer. And we’re effectively in the last half hour of the exam."
Julia Zamiro - " We don't like talking about politics...... people are uncomfortable facing facts.... We need to be more French about it and talk politics....... We're killing the planet and we want to go to space."
