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.
