As the UK prepares to host the global climate conference in Glasgow, COP26, the world is already starting to see the impacts of climate change.
In the first of a special series of episodes in the run up to the COP 26, Anoosh Chakelian interviews our guest co-host Philippa Nuttall, The New Statesman’s environment and Sustainability Editor, about how the Government is facing up to climate change and what to expect from Glasgow’s environmental summit.
They talk about how much lives need to change, who the onus for change needs to be on and how the UK compares to other countries in their approach to cutting emissions and tackling the climate crisis.
Episodes will be published every week, with the normal New Statesman Podcast published on Fridays as usual.
