In a world first, a 24 year-old Brisbane man is taking legal action against his superannuation fund for not factoring climate change into its investment decision.

The Radio National interview raises highly interesting arguments and perspectives. QMV's Jonathan Steffanoni clarifies various aspects of superannuation law from 10:12 min in the interview. The case will be back before the Federal Court this month, where the judge is expected to set a hearing date.
