Robert McLean/Shanon Loughnane
Walking from Melbourne to Canberra to protest climate change inaction
Show Notes

Shannon Loughnane is presently walking solo from Melbourne to Canberra to raise awareness about Australia's continued exploitation of fossil fuels and our government's absolute inaction on addressing climate change.
The 29-year-old university student was conscious of climate change, but knew little about its extent or capacity to devastate our communities and so after making as New Year resolution, decided to learn what he could and among those books which changed his life was Naomi Klein's "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate."
Shannon expects to arrive in Canberra just before the May 18 federal election and his petition, which calls for the abandonment of fossil fuels, the embrace of renewable energy and stopping of the Adani mine proposal, will, as some stage, go before our parliament's House of Representatives, he hopes.
Information about Shannon's commitment combating climate change can be found at his walk website.
