"And as i said that's both full if you like ethical reasons but i think it's also how you bring about transformational change It finally who is this book for. He was in your mind when you were writing it. Yeah no that's that's a great question. I think most of all. I've worked as i've said over the last ten to fifteen years in search ore in university settings with With students but also with people working in various activist organizations. And i think first of all by this book i've written for all the people who have had conversations with which goes something like look i'm passionately committed to climate action. But gee i have trouble at four in the morning sometimes thinking about you know how to keep going with this work so i think most of all it's full the vast number of people around the world now who are really clear that this is the indeed the most important priority will have to work on but i think all of us At times find a tough journey. So i think it's What i'm hoping to do as i said is not not provide a blueprint. Not a box of silver bullets but to contribute to the conversations which think we all have with family and friends about. How are we going to navigate this journey. And i hope this is a contribution to those conversations.

"I also think perhaps it's important in finding different sources of of of meaning and purpose. i mean just. It's interesting one of the take sarah photo. One of the set of ideas in the book is the the papal encyclical released by the vatican by pipe francis about four or five years ago and not myself personally christian faith but i think there's a good deal of wisdom in that document and it concludes by saying that One of the different perspectives. One of the different sets of values. We need to think about is Apps a way of life that places a little more emphasis on caring for the places we live and a little less on the acquisition and consumption. How do we stop managing eko anxiety. I as you say this this recent. Ipc report has really highlighted that we are in the midst of this crisis and we only have to look at the fire raging across europe and in california and so on to genuinely feel frightened for our future. That's not particularly helpful. No i mean. It's understandable. I think i certainly talked to many friends and colleagues and particularly students and younger people talk about the deep distress when i see see the fires and floods around the world and they think about the future so i think increasingly these concepts of these feelings of climate grief. Echoing zaidi The concerns that people talk about. And i really respect the. The work of psychologists and health workers who have identify range of pepsi will golden coping strategies for dealing with immediate climate greif. And that that's most of all includes the the skill the art of on the one hand balancing our commitment to urgent action With an away in each of us kant alone solve such a vast and complex problem on. They'll talk about staying well informed while not being overwhelmed by social media in the twenty four seven news cycle and of course not being isolated and being able to share the concerns with trusted friends. And that's all important. And i think those immediate strategies for dealing with climate grief are important and we all drawer on various mechanisms. But i think this is. The book tries to build on that foundation because as the full extent and duration of the climate crisis becomes clearer. I really think that we need to not just focus on short-term emotional coping mechanisms but rohrer ideas about meaning and direction. And that's why. I've came to explore these logic questions of how do we navigate an increasingly halt and harsh climate world. And how do we have difficult. Conversations with people about particularly climate deniers Well as with any effective conversation. I guess the would. Respect is important and respectfully so i- pep back two points here. I think there's a lot of research. Of course that shows that There's a spectrum of views about climate change ranging from people who completely committed to Emergency speed action at the one extreme and people who are completely committed to denial the other. I must say in terms of focusing political I think i'd be cain to focus on people who are at least open to the idea. That action is required. So i think that's the first point. But i also think it comes back to my point about the example of working with call dependent communities in australia. I think you really got to begin by listening carefully to the the concerns. People have very real concerns about you. Know their livelihoods and and They families and the future employment. So that's not without anyway backing away from understanding and respecting the science. I think we need to find ways of working carefully and respectfully with people..

"The ways in which people who work in all sorts of different ways in the arts in writing in all sorts of Spheres bring their own imagination to these challenges. But i really think that the odd says the enormously powerful in australia is an organization Climate who have not only organized many exhibitions and performances and so which highlights the climate crisis action but also as with the tight focused on. How can we get the big performing outs. Companies the galleries to divest from fossil fuel Sponsorship so yeah. I think that the liberate tights a great example of bringing imagination and creativity to bear. And you talk about social tipping points highlighting a movement in germany. The energy transition experiment. I suppose you could call it. Tell us about that because its roots go back to the nineteen seventy s. That's right. I mean i give a range of examples in the book of different sorts of of action and some of those of course during activists kind of examples like school strike for climate or three fifty dog. But i think it's also important to look to examples which really do engage with the political process with policy change. And i'm sure german listeners. Wide think that The energy transition in germany has been anything like perfect or anything like fast enough but i must say compared to australia. It always looks faster. At least and i think therefore it's an interesting case. Study if you like of the the way in which over a period of as you say. Twenty thirty is the development of a consciousness in germany about initially of course triggered by conversations about nuclear power and other sorts of energy but the awareness that A really major transition needed to occur in energy. I think to peps quick points to about that. I think the german example highlights the recognition that the transition to a non fossil fuel based energy system renewable energy. It needs to be you know. Well and thoughtfully adams equitably managed but they can be huge economic benefits as well as as well as costs in that. I also think And again it's by no means perfect but it's an interesting comparison side with australia. The emphasis on working with call dependent communities and workers has certainly been more effective and more thoughtful. I think than say in australia. And do you think that the transformational change to take place. We should be looking towards technological innovation. We'll tech be our savior. It'll be important. But i think it's not. I think it's naive to think that technology alone will be out savior as you say in fact. I think there's a real often attention. I think i sent me say said here in australia. Between if you like the techno optimist point of view that says yes something will will turn up. We'll learn how to we'll magically learn how to pull ceo two out of the air maybe we'll magically learn how to buy mirrors in space and reflect the sun back. I mean i on the one hand. I deeply respect My friends and colleagues who working in technology in engineering the advances in areas like renewable energy are incredibly important and and very exciting. But i think we need to firstly be cautious about simply say i we can continue business as usual and Yes something magical will turn up. I think there's real real risks in that. And i think it misses the point that we also need to think differently about the way we live. That's going to be important. In terms of reducing the demand we place on energy reducing consumption but..

"And of course that depends on your background if you do have a faith based background say or come from say indigenous first nation traditions. So there's a real diversity. Of course. But i also think there are some common threads and for example. I think common thread that almost everyone will talk about is the power of being involved in action with others of standing shoulder to shoulder of not feeling isolated. I think that That runs across many perspectives. I think another one is the realization that if we're going to travel through this hash new future in a reasonably resilient way we're going to have to think differently about the way we live in the world and i think across a lot of as traditions by secular and spiritual and religious the recognition that we can't keep we not certainly can't keep thinking that We can grow the economy endlessly on a finite planet. But we also need to and this comes through in many different philosophical and religious ecological perspectives. We have to learn that we are not above every other species. We depend on every other species where we're connected to the ecology of the planet on which we live. Now you're in australia. And you you quote from indigenous first nations people saying if we fail to care for country it cannot care for us. Tell us more about that. Yeah so as a non non-indigenous australian and i'm really aware that's my first house yet is to understand the ways in which Climate change impacts on indigenous communities in australia about many other places continues to intensify the legacies of colonial violence. And i think that's that's always. I think the first point in thinking about what i can learn if you like from indigenous communities and it's why as you noted before i think there's a strong link between our work on climate justice and movements like black lives matter and in australia campaign to like this in custody. So those you know that's got to be. I think the starting point for a non indigenous person like myself but having said that yes. I think there's a huge amount. We can the from the concept which in australia indigenous people talk about caring for country. I think that means as i understand it really strengthening our awareness of the the complexity and the fragility of the places the environments in which we live. I think it means Strengthening our awareness about the risks of shortsighted choices about consumption and waste and in australia. I think we're now starting to understand that. There's a huge amount to learn from indigenous communities. About how we manage food and water and fire and forests. So i think we've got a huge amount to learn and As long as we also bear in mind the need to make sure that we're not just Appropriating that knowledge that we're putting out energy to overcoming some of the injustices that exist as well. And i mean we can do this in many different ways. You describe how. It's done through art with liberate tate Yes yes Which of course is a movement which As evolved in london tight and i used that said that For christmas you might not be aware has was a movement to initially to get the tight to divest to move away from sponsors of emotional sponsors who had investments in fossil fuel. And i think the will so it's a very creative and imaginative ways of highlighting that connection and bringing pressure to bear. So that's you know. I think that's an example..

"-ality of the climate crisis and many other issues for instance racism inequality insecurity. How do we find. How do we begin to find. Solutions that encompassed tackling all of these. There's attention here. Is there between but some people call the tension between justin speed or some people. See that as attention. You know that we have to act incredibly fast and we also have to act in a way that Make sure that to put one. My no one gets left behind and that the people who have often had to least role in accelerating climate change pay the greatest price so some people would say this is a tension between the speed with which we act and the issues of climate justice. I actually think that they have to go together. Both for ethical reasons but also for strategic reasons. If you like to give one example in australia you may be aware. There's quite a fierce discussion about phasing out of call. And i think if we're going to be able to rapidly phase out coal in australia. We've also got to address the concerns of workers and communities in those called dependent regions. And i think that's true in other countries in india zero or germany and so on so. I think that the task here is to think. Creatively unimaginative about Bringing together justice and stayed and that imaginative thinking you've drawn on so many different schools of thought in this book you've spoken to indigenous leaders to islamic and christian citizens into social movements. Why is it helpful to bring them all together like this. And is there a consensus of opinion. I see this. I mean when i set out to write this book i was thinking this is not. You know list of silver bullets or list of blueprints or list of single answers. I mean one of the things that's Struck me and inspired me and writing. The book is conversations. We've a really wide range of people and on the one hand. Yes the realization that people drawer on such a a diverse range of sources of inspiration..

"Thanks so much for speaking to us. You're in actually in melbourne. At the moment. I am indeed in mobile and living in australia. I mean how evident is it to you that the climate crisis is a real pressing emergency in australia. Of course we see evidence. Every year every month really of the climate crisis we see an increasing number of Severe fis but also storms and floods and drought and so on so we see that we have that experience and of course that reinforces the evidence that we see for example from the most recent ipc climate science report. We see that to here so it's both experienced evidence that really makes it crystal clear that yeah we're facing well. The climate crisis has arrived. Put it that way..
