COP 26: Aggressive action must be taken this decade to save the world from climate change (E1038)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Prof. Peter Smith of Scotland’s Climate Change Centre of Expertise. He discusses the agenda of this year’s COP 26 climate change summit, the meteoric rise in carbon emissions and the urgent need to reach an emissions peak before drastic reductions, the need for urgent action this decade on the climate crisis, fossil fuel industry lobbying against climate action, the potential industry of CO2 removal from the atmosphere and much more! Finally, Going Underground’s deputy editor, Charlie Cooke, speaks to BAFTA-winning director Mark Jenkin about his film ‘BAIT’, which explores how gentrification under neoliberalism has completely changed the iconic British city of Cornwall, bringing cultural and economic hardships for the people of the area. Mark Jenkin discusses how the experiences of the characters of the film reflect the lives of many in this economic climate.
