Most Australians now accept that climate change is real, but very few of us know what we can do about it.
Presenter Craig Reucassel tackles one of our planet’s biggest challenges, climate change, as he seeks to understand where our energy comes from, how transport and travel emissions affect our health and just what is the carbon footprint of the things we eat?
Fight for Planet A will entertain, inform and challenge our thoughts on climate change. Craig will showcase how we, as individuals, families, schools and businesses can help reduce our carbon footprint by making practical day-to-day changes, especially in our homes.
We’ll meet five very different Aussie households, who will take on Craig’s ‘climate challenge’ to reduce their energy, transport and food carbon emissions.
Small actions can lead to big changes, and we can all play a part, so it’s time for Australians to collectively change the way we think about climate change and join the Fight for Planet A.
In the first episode Craig seeks to understand and explain where our energy comes from. He persuades five, Australian households to undertake a ‘climate challenge’ encouraging them to see if they can reduce their carbon emissions.
He also talks to everyday Australians to see what they think our everyday emissions are compared to countries like China, UK and the US and makes a special delivery to one of Australia’s biggest companies.
