🔥🐨 Catastrophic | Karen Viggers

Climactic

Karen Viggers lives in Canberra, she is a Vet who works with native wildlife in the field. This January she volunteered her services to help the animals and saw first hand the impact of the catastrophic bushfires on flora and fauna. Karen has had experience with a number of big bushfires throughout her life, including the Black Saturday fires of 2009 but has never seen anything like the fires of this past Christmas and New year. She gives an interesting scientific perspective on the impact, cause and repair of the Aussie bushfires. Catastrophic is a dual podcast and political protest. Catastrophic tells the tales of the Australian bushfires and calls for all-partisan political action around Climate Change. Each episode of Catastrophic features an Australian talking about their experience of living through the bushfire crisis, what their fears are now and for the future and what they would like to see done about it on a government level. But it doesn’t end when the episode goes out. We at Listen Up Podcasting are taking every story we gather, every episode we release of the Catastrophic podcast and putting them together into one big audio file and sending it to ALL the politicians. These are our demands: They are the same demands people have been protesting about and calling for over the last few years: No new coal, oil and gas projects, including the Adani mine and the Wallarah 2 coal project. 100% renewable energy generation & exports by 2030 Fund a just transition & job creation for all fossil-fuel workers & communities.
