Most Australians accept that climate change is real, but many don't know what to do about it and feel powerless to make a difference.  In his book, Fight for Planet A, Craig Reucassel shows that it isn't as scary as we think, and we can make a difference to help protect the world for future generations.

The Chaser comedian and presenter of War on Waste sets out solutions and practical day-to-day changes we can make to reduce our carbon footprint, as well changes our governments need to make without further delay.
