The planet needs our help. We are in the middle of a climate crisis. Australians alone created an astounding 539 million tonnes of carbon emissions for the year to March 2019. Craig investigates where those emissions are coming from and how we can reduce them... starting with our energy emissions.
We are one of the highest emitters per capita in the world but do Aussies know about this and what do they think? Craig heads onto the streets to ask everyday Australians if they know how high our carbon emissions are when compared to other countries like China and the U.S.
Craig invites five different Australian households to our Planet A headquarters to show them how much carbon they are creating every two hours. He then asks them to join him on a climate challenge to see what changes they can make in their own lives to reduce their carbon footprint. #fightforplanetA
