Surviving climate change, resource depletion, the energy crisis - and staying in control
Hydrogen - the Debate Continues
While the hydrogen debate continues the Extinction Rebellion protest continues as well, but it's not getting many headlines. If you exercise your democratic right to protest could it prevent you from getting a job, from getting motor insurance, from getting a visa to visit Europe? In this episode there's also news about a new form of mass electricity storage and details of the events that the Sustainable Futures Report is presenting next month as part of York Environment Week and the Great Big Green Week.
Climate Emergency - I don't deny it!
Denialists and those in denial - hydrogen - should it be grey, green or blue, or is it a red herring? - Should Alok Sharma be driving a diesel car? Why are both Biden and Boris encouraging the extraction of more oil and coal? And an interview with the team at Bucha Bio: young entrepreneurs replacing a traditional material with a sustainable alternative.
Extreme Danger - IPCC
Yes, that report's out. No surprises for most of us. What do we do now? What do governments do now? Well, they take action, and we make sure they do. Never give up!
The Green Urbanist
In episode No. 350 we have an interview with Ross O’Ceallaigh of the Green Urbanist podcast. In other news there's the Siberian heatwave and methane emissions, foreign control of North Sea oil threatens UK’s net zero goal, the mortality cost of carbon, HS2 may never reach the end of the line and new insights from Allegra Stratton, the Prime Minister’s climate crisis spokesperson.
Extreme Weather - Extreme Warnings
This is an extra edition of the Sustainable Futures Report. There's so much comment, reporting and news that this is an attempt to keep you up to date. There will be another edition on Friday as normal!
Rewilding - Getting Nature Back to Nature
Rewilding to address the climate crisis: I talk to Ria Rocha of Mossy Earth. And there's news from Ireland of creative climate action.
Good content on sustainable ancient and climate change
Anthony does know his stuff and is really responsive to emails. Gathers up the most pertinent news stories on climate and sustainability for a quick weekly podcast. One of my most valued subscriptions without a doubt.
Anthony Day knows his stuff
I have known Anthony for a long time. He is an eloquent speaker and really knows about sustainability. I will be recommending this podcast to students wanting to get into this field a it is a quick way to understand the issues. Keep the regular podcast Anthony - it is great content!
Green but increasingly Red
Anthony Day has a practical and wide-ranging knowledge of what citizens and communities can do to resist the degradation of our world as we struggle with waste, overpopulation and those who profit by denying that climate change is happening. The back-catalogue contains a lot of guests who are well qualified to address these problems, in terms of their position and knowledge.
In recent months the podcast has become increasingly political, and perhaps this reflects the ground that has been lost but I for one find it distasteful. This is a podcast that used to report on how companies could find good economic reasons to clean up their act, and how individuals could still do good things to reduce environmental strain, regardless of which pack of jokers currently inhabit the White House or Downing Street.
Mr Day is butthurt about Brexit: we get it. He’s a socialist in a nation that’s turning away from socialism: we get it. But should that be a recurring theme from the Sustainable Futures Report? Well… that’s up to the podcaster, of course. If you want your eco-news with an increasingly unsubtle left-wing bias, enjoy… just as I enjoyed the older episodes.
