How climate change is killing us: Paddy Manning
/
Author Paddy Manning has worked as a journalist for more than 15 years and in his new book “Body count: How climate change is killing us” he is investigating the true scale of climate change related deaths. From heat stroke victims to devastating mental health issues related with climate anxiety, Manning shows that climate deaths didn’t start in 2019 during one of the worst fire seasons Australia has ever experienced. For his book Manning has spoken to survivors and the families of victims to make us realise that it is time to act.   This Episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Angela Heathcote (Digital Producer at Australian Geographic) and produced by Ben Kanthak (www.beachshackpodcasts.com).   You can also follow us on Instagram @australiangeographic
