How many solar panels in Brisbane will slow a cyclone heading to the Phillipines?
In the ongoing coverage of climate politics, a new chapter has been written. Climate blogger Jo Nova talks to Luke Grant about Psychologist Susie Burke who tells the story of a woman who came to her for counselling after having her first child. Not because she was suffering from post-natal depression, but because she was “struggling with the enormity of what she had done.” She felt she had brought her child into a “world she knew was going to be a lot harsher and a lot less safe.”
Jo says “Burke is an Australian psychologist and academic who specializes in eco-psychology. She treats people suffering mental illness as a result of climate change, and also recently set up a free hotline called the “Climate Change Psychological Support Network,” where Australians can call a qualified psychologist to talk through their feelings about environmental change”.
As well as talking about the climate policies of the government and whether Minister Taylor should remove Australia from the Paris Agreement, Jo asks the question, how many solar panels in Brisbane will slow a cyclone heading to the Phillipines?
