Zerocarbonista is the podcast from green entrepreneur and climate change campaigner, Dale Vince.

Hear more from Dale and his guests in every episode.
Episode 36 - Johnson's Chopper
There are more reasons to wonder whether the government’s heart is really in fighting the climate crisis - from PM’s unnecessary helicopter trip, to a new Police and Crime Commissioner who doesn’t want to buy “foreign” electric vehicles, but loves his gas guzzling trucks. We also find out how some clever AI tech has worked out oil and gas giants were denying the science of climate change for years, and there’s more of your questions too.
Episode 35 - Beltane & Methane
Today we talk about Dale and Forest Green’s support of an anti-gambling campaign in football, as well as the Pagan calendar, and news that underlines the eat less meat argument. We find out why Dale loves smart meters, and what’s on his bank holiday BBQ.
Episode 34 - Three Tories and Vince
A bonkers week - even though we recorded a couple of days early. There’s an update on our planning appeal with the Good Law Project to change government policy, and how Dale met two government ministers on the same day. We also get news on improvements to the Electric Highway, Britain’s continued fascination with meat, and how Dale almost fell for David Cameron. Lots of your questions too.
Episode 33 - Waking up from a bad dream
It’s a big episode - as world leaders get together for Earth Day - Dale gets excited by Biden’s renewed US climate push, but is bewildered by Boris and alarmed by Australia.
We talk digital fashion, could grass become a source of human protein, and why kid’s show Blue Peter was wrong to bow to pressure from farmers. There’s also more from Britain’s best radio shockjock Mike Graham - and this time he’s trying to convince Dale that more AC can solve the climate crisis.
Episode 32 - Do you remember the last time?
We discuss the disconnect between the UK government’s environmental policy and reality - and there’s a lot of food talk this week - as Ian tries going veggie for the week and a new listener wants to go vegan. Dale’s also become the biggest fan of seagrass too. If you’re into football, there’s talk of the coaching situation at Forest Green Rovers, and what might be next….
Episode 31 - Get them onboard
A busy week as we discuss rising CO2 levels, why COP26 might be the “best last chance” at fighting climate change. We also digest the response to Dale’s radio debate with XR co-founder Dr Gail Bradbrook, and look at why farmers are going after kid’s TV favourite, Blue Peter. We answer loads of your questions, and receive a few rants too.
