Helping people help themselves
In just 14 years, global temperatures are set to be 2°C above pre-industrial levels. From the daily fear of bushfires to rocketing insurance costs, the implications of climate change are serious…and happening now. In this special edition we revisit Leonardo DiCaprio’s impassioned Oscar’s speech about “the most urgent threat facing our entire species”, and take a look at what all this means for average, urban-dwelling Australians.
