Passing The Torch

| Ali Klinkenberg

“Normally I’m all for robbing banks,” jokes Wayne Lynch, surfing pioneer and genuine Australian cultural icon, “but I’m not sure that’s the right way to go about it.” We’re congregated out the front of the Patagonia store in Jonson Street, Byron Bay, awaiting the start of Strike For Climate march and discussing the bom...

The Climate Crisis Is a Human Issue

| Bill McKibben

Some of that injustice is racial and colonial: The iron law of climate change is, the less you did to cause it, the sooner you feel its effects. Some of that injustice is intergenerational: Those who poured the most carbon into the air will be dead before its effects are fully felt.

Treeline: The Film

| Molly Baker

Trees are intertwined with human existence—through religion, in times of war, in standing for what we’ll fight to protect, with our hopes and wishes that we share. They stand implanted in our own history. T

Treeline: Trespassing

A Blueprint for Cooling Earth

| Brad Wieners

When he was 22 and away at college, Charles Massy got a fateful shock: His father had suffered a severe heart attack, and while it wasn’t immediately fatal, it was clear his dad could no longer run the family farm back home in the Monaro region of New South Wales

The Reef Beneath

| Wayne Lynch

The Great Barrier Reef is around 2,500 miles long, the largest living thing on earth. I’ve sailed right past it before while sailing out into the Pacific, but I’ve never actually stopped there and spent time on it. I’m kicking myself now.

Australian High Court Upholds Peaceful Protest

| Dr Bob Brown

The High Court of Australia has drawn a line in the sand against laws which curb the right of the people to peaceful protest.
