TGoG Podcast 067 – Simple Climate Action You Can Take Right Now

The Greening of Gavin PodcastTonight, I attended a webinar hosted by the Australian Conservation Foundation that got me all fired up.  It was titled ‘Don’t drop the ball on climate action’.  It was great and Victoria  presented it like a pro.

So it got me so enthused that I just had to record this weeks podcast episode about the simple climate action that you can take right now.

Firstly, I must say that I did express my disappointment with our current Australian Government and their campaign against strong climate action.  However, with that said, after the 7 minute mark, I focus entirely on individual actions that you can take to lower your personal environmental footprint.  It also features other community actions that you can also take.

Hopefully this episode will put a fire in your belly and help you think deeply, take positive steps to climate action, and to living a more sustainable lifestyle.  Just like the webinar did for me tonight.

Also, here is the link to the petition that I mentioned during the show; http://www.action.org.au/keep-our-climate-safe

    Hi Gavin,

    I think your point about letting people know how much money they can save is excellent. A lot of people wouldn’t think that saving $200 a year is a really big deal, but if you do that for 10 years that’s an extra $2000 in your pocket. Find 10 ways to save $200 a year and that makes you $20,000 richer over a ten year period!

    We’ve always used below average amounts of electricity, but with prices continuing to rise I challenged the kids (aged 11 and 14) to cut our usage even further. for the last two quarters our usage has been about 33% less than it was at the same time the preceding year. I took the kids out for a morning tea treat to celebrate, and to show them how much I appreciated their efforts.

    Have a great day :)

      Hi Madeleine, you hit on an important point that I failed to mention. Recognition and reward.

      We celebrate our successes here, when we reach our goals. Kim and I will make a special dinner and set up a nice table in the garden and relax in the ambiance of it all. Recognising your achievements is a very important step for keeping the momentum alive.

      Thanks for mentioning it.

      Gav
