COP26 & Malaysia's Flood Crisis
In this episode, we recap what happened at COP26 in November 2021 and Malaysia's flood crisis. Though Malaysia signed Global Methane Pledge, and overall the Glasgow Climate Pact, does it mean real climate action for the rakyat? Are we moving away from false solutions like net zero 2050 or carbon-neutrality? More lives will be lost than saved as temperatures rise. Do not forget these floods and everyone who were affected, we must demand accountability.

The Coal Truth - Malaysia's unsustainable obsession with coal
In this episode we talked to Mangai Balasegaram, a journalist that actively writes about Malaysia's health, climate, and energy issues. We also included an extended audio clip of our interview with fisherfolk in Johor who work and live near one of the biggest coal power plants in Malaysia.
