Great “street level” approach!

What I like about Fiona’s approach to the Climate Crisis is to focus on what “we” can do on an individual basis. It’s easier to feel like you’re actually doing something and making a difference. Then once you have some small wins, it’s easier to take a more global approach. Highly recommend this podcast.
