We recorded the following speakers at the Melbourne rally: Dr Eleonora Gullone, Brian Murray, Dr Helen Jeges, Kim Oxley, Dr Sonja Kassenboehmer and Jennifer Davis.

We speak with Philip Sutton, a climate campaigner and long time environmentalist. In 2008, Philip co-authored the book ‘Climate Code Red: The Case for Emergency Action’.

We chat with Philip about what a safe climate is and why climate change IS an animal issue.
