Blockadia with the Pacific climate warriors – 350 Aotearoa

Aaron Packard of 350 Aotearoa joined me for this episode. He is part of the global 350.org movement dedicated to climate action.

We talked about his work in the pacific, the new government, and the power of funds divestment.

I mentioned a bit from Vox about nuclear power – here’s a link to their video on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poPLSgbSO6k
