"Catastrophic" is a dual podcast and political protest project.
"Catastrophic" tells the tales of the Australian bushfires from the 2019/2020 summer and calls for political action around Climate Change. Every story we gather, every episode we release, of the Catastrophic podcast is being sent in a protest email to over 100 politicians and members of the media, every week. These are our demands for effective Climate Action:
No new coal, oil and gas projects, including the Adani mine and the Wallarah 2 coal project.
100% renewable energy generation & exports by 2030
Fund a just transition & job creation for all fossil-fuel workers & communities.
Hand over land conservation and management to First Nations Australians
Start preserving our water and treating it as a precious resource not a commodity.
If you or anyone you know has a story they would like to share from or about the Aussie bushfires please instant message us via:
Catastrophic Podcast Facebook page
or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will get in touch to record your story. We encourage every Australian who cares about this issue to write to their local MP and demand action on Climate Change.
