The final part of a six-part video of the public forum Exploring Solutions to the Global Climate and Economic Crises, held at Sutherland NSW on 2nd July 2009. Presented by Sutherland Climate Action Network sutherlandcan.org.au
Questions 6-11 from the audience:
[0:00] Margaret Capare to John: How can we influence radio shock jocks who constantly disparage climate change?
[2:09] To John: Iceland uses geothermal power - why isn't that in the spotlight in Australia?
[5:00] To John: How about the solar tower in South Australia?
[6:48] Naomi Waizer to Frank & Richard: Why hasn't the global financial crisis put neo-liberalism on shaky ground? What will it take to get rid of that? [video problems]
[11:39] Mark Buttigieg to Richard & Frank & Phil: Most people are leaving climate change to the politicians now. We need to build climate action groups to a mass political movement to outweigh polluters and force change from politicians. How?
[16:12] To Frank & Richard: Do we need a consensus government like in wartime or can it be done with our traditional oppositional approach?
