Green Alliance News Review #6: CCC, IPBES and football

Episode Summary

The latest insights into environmental policy and politics in the UK and abroad.

Episode Notes

In this episode: what do we know and how should we act? We look at two major reports that have landed with an almighty thump: the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) report on net zero and the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) report on species loss. Plus, we join climate twitter in the campaign for two football finals to come home to the UK.
