‘Do the Math’ Documentary about the Climate Movement

Do the Math,  tells the story of the climate change movement, with an emphasis on Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org. McKibben is also a journalist and author. His first book, The End of Nature, which was published in 1989, is considered the first book about climate change written for a lay audience. In 2008, he and some friends founded 350.org, an organization devoted to combating climate change.

Interview with Rob Pyne MP at the Stand up for Solar BBQ

On July the 11th, Cairns Climate Action Network (CCAN) hosted a Stand up for Solar BBQ at the Cairns Esplanade which was supported by CAFNEC.

We invited 20 Solar Businesses from the region, and we also invited Federal, State and Cairns Regional Council elected representatives.
Thank you to Rob Pyne MP, Member for Cairns, who spent some time with us, and graciously let me interview him.

I received phone and email apologies from Warren Entsch MP, Senator Jan McLucas, Curtis Pitt MP, Cr Richie Bates and Cr Jessie Richardson. This is great news as it means that our elected representatives now know that their constituents are taking a stand for Renewable Energy.
