Should you talk to your family about climate change?

+ LIVE show announcement!

G’day Fearmongers,

Each month on the A Rational Fear podcast feed we deliver you a Greatest Moral Podcast of Our Generation. Long form conversations with climate leaders.

This month we feature two great brains to help you deal with talking about climate change with your family at Christmas, Sarah Wilson and Dr. Rebecca Huntley.

If you think there’s even the slightest chance you’ll need talk about Emissions Trading Schemes with your uncle that listens only to 2GB, or feel like you may have to explain to a cousin that “baseload power” isn’t a thing, or tell your sister in law that a “gas led recovery” isn’t going to make electricity cheaper, then this is the podcast you’ll want to listen to.

Both Sarah and Rebecca give great insights into how to talk to people about climate change, and how you in turn can take action yourself.

Also in this podcast Linh Do and I rip into the month of climate news, and there is a lot of it.
