Ash and Jess find out about Australia’s potential as a global leader in renewable power, and start to unpack the structures and powers that keep us dependent on fossil fuels. We learn more about what everyday people can do to kick coal out of the system, speed up the renewable energy revolution, and encourage big businesses to do so too!
