TV host and eco-activist’s concerns for Coast homeowners
He tormented our politicians for years, and now former The Chaser member Craig Reucassel is turning his attention to the environment, and he has concerns for Noosa's coastline.
After huge success with The War on Waste, Reucassel's new show takes on a climate challenge to reduce our carbon emissions and understand where our energy comes from.
Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge aims to entertain, inform, and challenge our thoughts on climate change.
The former Chaser co-host will showcase how individuals, families, schools, and businesses can help reduce our carbon footprint by making practical day-to-day changes, especially in our homes.
Reucassel said how we contribute to the problem is only half the story.
The eco-activist believes the impact climate change will have on Australians is where the real issue lies.
"We get really affected by drought, fire and storms," he said.
He paid particular attention to Noosa's coastline and the potential dangers of living by the ocean.
"Noosa unfortunately is one of those areas where there is a lot of low-lying residential places," he said.
"That's not a short-term thing, that's more long term.
"It maybe 50 or 60 years away, but we have to get onto that now. Because we don't want to deal with the consequences of no action."
Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge, premiers Tuesday August 11, from 8.30pm on ABC and iView.
