Surviving climate change, resource depletion, the energy crisis - and staying profitable

    Accentuate the Positive

    Accentuate the Positive

    It’s time to accentuate the positive - to explain to people what’s good about tackling climate change rather than frightening and depressing them with speculation about what could go wrong. This week I’m also talking about COP26, about HS2 and about nuclear options suggested by Bill Gates and Rolls-Royce.
    But first, last time I introduced Victoria, our latest patron, whose objective this year is to reduce her carbon footprint by 45%

    I Don't Deny It

    I Don't Deny It

    OK, OK, I don’t deny it. I said there wouldn’t be another Sustainable Futures Report until Friday 14th February. That’s still true, although you’ve got this extra one for Friday 24th January. There’s just so much piling into my inbox that I  have to do something  about it. This episode is about denial.

    This episode is about ideas. I asked you suggest in 100 words your ideas of what we should do in 2020. Ideas came from Australia and America as well as from the UK. I had some ideas from Ian Jarvis following up on previous topics.

    Taking Back Control

    Taking Back Control

    It’s the final Sustainable Futures Report of 2019 - episode No. 45. 

    I’ll be commenting on the British General Election, although it won’t take long. More important is the outcome of COP25, the UN Climate Conference in Madrid, where hard-fought negotiations struggled into extra time over the weekend. And Sarah Tuneberg of Geospiza explains how we can take back control of the "natural" disasters already being caused by climate change.

    Biomimicry - Nature shows the Way

    Aside from election news, on the sustainability front Australia is still ablaze, COP25, the UN Climate Conference, draws to a close this week with criticism and complaints, Greta Thunberg says the school strikes have achieved nothing and some in Scotland are having a grouse - about grouse moors. There are lessons we can learn from Nature. I spoke to Richard James MacCowan who is the founder and managing director of Biomimicry UK.

    COP25, the UN Climate Change Conference, started this week in Madrid. Christine LaGarde and Mark Carney are entering the climate debate. As coal becomes uninsurable fossil fuel lobbyists redouble their greenwash and VW has its day in court to answer the emissions scandal. There’s a lack of clarity in a recently-released report on fracking, Simon Tilley tells us a story - not for the faint-hearted - and Greenpeace has served up a turkey - but hopes that you won’t.

Valuable content, but...

The sound quality needs to be improved for a more enjoyable listening experience. I suggest a new microphone, or maybe some pillows lining the walls. However, the content is well researched and well presented other than that.
