    Glen Eira Declares a Climate Emergency 54 days into lockdown | Spotlight on community climate action

    How did a community climate action group get their city council to not only declare a climate emergency, but commit to emergency level emissions reduction measures, during a global pandemic?

    Coalitions, campaigning, determination and good old-fashioned organizing!

    Coalition members Belinda Haydon and Elinor Hasenfratz share their story.

    🔰💬 Mark and Eav | Will we really have fish… forever? | Matt Watson from the Marine Stewardship Council

    🔰💬 Mark and Eav | Will we really have fish… forever? | Matt Watson from the Marine Stewardship Council

    The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) is an independent non-profit which sets a standard for sustainable fishing. Mark and new Climactic member Eav talk to Matt Watson, Senior Fisheries Manager.

    Eav is a marine scientist by training, so has some great questions for Matt around the MSC approach to sustainable fisheries, an ecosystems approach. Mark - as an untrained enthusiast - wants to know how consumers can use the MSC tickmark on canned tuna to send fishing companies a message.

    It was great to talk to a member of such an influential and successful non-profit, and we can't wait to explore more product certification schemes, and challenge if they're appropriately engaging with the climate crisis.

    In this episode you'll learn about how fisheries are being affected by marine heatwaves, and how changing ocean temperatures are affecting fishing grounds.

    Apologies for some audio quality issues with this recording, there was a mic selection problem on Mark's end.

    Special Guest: Matt Watson.

    🔰💬 Mark Spencer | Climate Action during COVID-19 — Dr Harry Jennens

    Harry is not just trainee General Practitioner, he's also a climate activist. So he's a great person to talk to about how to continue organising for climate action, while the COVID-19 virus understandably dominates the world's attention.

    Mark and Evan met on the Project Drawdown group on Facebook, but didn't realise it at the time. Then they were put into a group thread by a fellow connector, Daniel Poynter. Evan reached out to be on the podcast, and Mark just loved that. In this episode Mark and Evan go into the likelihood of a US Green New Deal, but more importantly into what it really means, and how to achieve the goal of a job and a life that's actively spent in pursuit of solutions to the climate crisis.

    You'll get a lot from this episode, but fair warning, you may be inspired to upgrade your job. Don't say we didn't give you a heads-up.

    On the Parliament Steps with Daniel Bleakley | XR Global Hunger Strike

    On the Parliament Steps with Daniel Bleakley | XR Global Hunger Strike

    Mark joined Daniel Bleakley on the steps of the Victorian Parliament for a chat about the past 7 days of his hunger strike, the global XR hunger strike, his methods and self-care through this experience, and much more.

    From Daniel;

    "Day 7. Seventh day of Extinction Rebellion Hunger strike. Starting to feel a bit weak but still focused. Today I'm continuing to request a meeting between members of the Andrews Government and a group of XR representatives to discuss our demands which are:


    That the Government come together to declare a climate emergency now.


    That the Government commit to net zero emissions by 2025. To avoid a further deepening of the Climate Crisis.


    That the Government install a citizens assembly to help guild the transition to a safe sustainable future.

    Our children don't deserve the future that they're facing right now..."

    Costa Georgiadis and Dirt Girl — Get Grubby TV

    Costa Georgiadis and Dirt Girl — Get Grubby TV

    Costa's World has been hugely popular among kids, and it wasn't hard to see why when Costa and Dirt Girl performend live at the Ballarat Begonia Festival in 2018. The Festival was a month before Climactic launched, and host Mark had the chance to interview Costa and Dirt Girl, before really having any sense of the legends they were.

    They were absolutely gracious, and this became a great interview. But it would have languised without the help of new editor, Reece Gray, who gave it the time and attention it needed. Enjoy!
