#258: Roads "WHY HAVEN'T YOU BABBLED ABOUT EVIL EVIL POO-BUM ROADS?!?!" yells twitter. Well, your bellowed word is our grudging command.

But while we're delighted to go truffling for babble in tarmac territory, there is no way on god's earth we are picking sides in the internecine war that is anti-roads campaigners vs anti-HS2 campaigners.

But still. It is true, is it not, that comparatively little fuss is made about comparatively bollocks-loads of big new roads planned or under construction in England. Which is odd, because big new roads are quite literally a highway to climate hell, aren't they? And not altogether spiffing for the trees or newts or humans that used to *not* have a four lane monstrosity on top of them.

But roads are also really quite useful, and surely the government has a point when it says we need more because the ones we've got are full. And just how evil will roads be in the future when all the things driving on them are fossil-free?

We discuss.

Hot weather and quiet tropics stick around In this episode, we will take a look at the heat and humidity, which just ebb and flow but won’t go away. We’ll also look at the tropics, and In particular the Saharan dust.
How hot is hot? As we look at the week ahead, we’ll see that August is beginning on a wet note. We’ll also see a heatwave start developing on Tuesday and possibly lasting through Friday, depending on the speed of the cold front.
Startup Series: Epoch Biodesign Today's guest is Jacob Nathan, CEO and Co-Founder of Epoch Biodesign.Plastics are among the most visible and ubiquitous environmental issues plaguing Earth today. Hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced every year, but they weren't mass produced until after World War II (that's just one human lifetime ago). As a byproduct of the fossil fuel industry, plastics contribute significantly to the value of a barrel of oil, they create considerable emissions when produced, and they release carbon into the atmosphere when they are incinerated at the end of their lifecycle. So while plastics are a key building block of our modern world, they're also very problematic. Epoch Biodesign is on a mission to scale and industrialize biology to solve the world's biggest climate challenges, starting with an enzyme that eats plastic and converts it to industrial chemicals. The company is currently working with unrecyclable plastics that would otherwise go to landfill or incineration. The resulting molecules from their unique biological process can be used to create new products like adhesives, cleaning products, and fertilizers. In today’s episode, we cover: An overview of plastics, their origin, widespread uses, and impacts on the environmentPlastics and the fossil fuel industryProblems associated with recycling End of life pathways most plastics take Epoch Biodesign's solution to addressing the plastic problem How enzymes can break down plastics and convert them into useful chemicals with a reduced carbon footprint The company's cell-free fermentation process and target outputs CO2 emissions associated with producing and incinerating plastic chemicals The origin of Epoch Biodesign Jacob's background and how he met his Co-Founder, Douglas Kell Douglas Kell's extensive background in systems biology, machine learning, etc. How Epoch Biodesign uses machine learning and tooling to design a computing platform for plastic-eating enzymes Future applications of the company's proprietary methods of designing biology How Epoch Biodesign's software enables them to scale and solve climate problems fasterThe company's business model Adjacent opportunities including textiles Epoch Biodesign's seed round and future financing Who Jacob wants to hear from and open positions at Epoch BiodesignEnjoy the show!You can find Cody on Twitter @codysimms, @mcjpod (podcast) or @mcjcollective (company).

Lighting Dangers & Wall of Wind Why are men more likely to get struck by lightning than women? We chat with the National Weather Service on this shocking story. Plus, if you had to wait to test safer construction methods when a hurricane threatens, you may have to wait a while. A huge wall of wind may just help and its here in our own So FL backyard. That's all on this issue of, "Weather or Not?'
Ketan Joshi Today's guest is Ketan Joshi, a writer, data analyst and communications consultant working on climate and energy. Ketan Joshi has been at the forefront of clean energy for eight years, starting out as a data analyst working in wind energy, and expanding his knowledge base to community engagement, climate science and new energy technology. He’s written for the Guardian, The Monthly, ABC News and has penned several hundred blog posts digging into climate and energy issues, building a position as a respected and analytical energy commentator in Australia. Ketan is also the author of Windfall: Unlocking a Fossil Free Future, and has a large following on social media. Before coming on the show, Ketan and Jason had a few heated exchanges on Twitter. Despite what appeared to be opposing views around climate, this conversation shed light on an important lesson about the polarization of social media platforms. When we actually take the time to meet and discuss these topics live, we might find out that we’re in agreement more than we think. In today’s episode, we cover: Ketan's background and personal climate journeyHis experience working in data science, communications, community engagement, and climate policy within organizationsHow his feelings about climate and theory of change have evolved over timeThe level of urgency of the climate crisis and the level of disruption we should expect in order to adequately address itOur dependence on fossil fuelsThe rate of change in emissions reductions and some of the impacts associated with itBenefits of engaging community members in climate solutionsThe role of corporate decision making in heavily fossil reliant companiesHow society impacts individual decision makingBenefits of reducing carbon emissions and examples where it's not easy to doThe role of natural gas in the clean energy transitionKetan's thoughts about carbon removal and its role in the transitionTransforming carbon offsetsKetan's thoughts on nuclear and if we should be deploying it at scaleWho he'd like to hear fromEnjoy the show!You can find Jason on Twitter @jjacobs22, @mcjpod (podcast) or @mcjcollective (company).

Episode 9: In-Sik Kang In-Sik Kang’s career in climate science started about half a century ago, and it has been remarkable in many ways—scientifically, but also in that In-Sik has spent most of his life in a country that started from very little, in climate science and every other way, having been devastated by war right at the start of his life.
In-Sik is a long-time global leader in climate modeling, climate variability, seasonal climate prediction and atmosphere-ocean interaction. He built a large and amazingly successful group over several decades as a professor at Seoul National University. At SNU, he and his students built an original atmosphere-ocean general circulation model, or climate model, one of very few University groups to do that in-house in the modern era where it tends to happen only in national labs, and they also turned this into a state-of-the-art seasonal prediction system. The many generations of students that he trained now fill academic and research positions in Korea, the US and elsewhere.
Like almost no other scientist in the field, In-Sik has been a tireless organizer and builder of scientific collaboration and scientific institutions internationally. He has done this through service on many international committees and panels; through his long-time affiliation with the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy; and through his work as an advisor, formally and informally, to climate scientists in many developing countries. Having grown up in a poor country himself, In-Sik can relate to their struggles, but he is also keen to underline the importance of self-responsibility:
“And then I ask them immediately, “Can you change your country? Can you change your institution? And can you change your professor? Of course, no, right? So that [means] you should change yourself.”
Most recently he helped the founders of the Center of Excellence for Climate Change Research at the King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia to get that center started. For all this work, in 2021 In-Sik was awarded the IMO prize, the highest award given by the World Meteorological Association.
In-Sik’s family came from North Korea, but fled to the South just before his birth to escape communism and war. So In-Sik grew up in Busan, at the southern tip of South Korea, during a time when the country was poor to a degree that’s hard to grasp if you only know it from recent decades. But he got an education at SNU, the nation’s top University, became a weather forecaster in the military, and then, by a serendipitous connection, got admitted as a graduate student at Oregon State University in the US. He did so well there that he finished in just a little over 3 years, and got a postdoctoral position to work with Isaac Held at GFDL, despite not having published any papers yet.
From there In-Sik got a faculty position back at SNU, and the rest is history. But In-Sik’s own story, as he’s the first to point out, runs parallel to, and in some ways exemplifies that of his country, as both rose from poverty and hardship to amazing, globally recognized success, through talent, intense hard work, and a profound belief in the importance of education.
The interview with In-Sik Kang was recorded in February 2022. Image credit: SIO
#257: Bird Flu Fans of our feathered friends, look away now...If you've been to the coast recently there's every chance you'll have seen, how can we put this delicately, an exceptionally dead bird washed up on the shore. Or, more likely, dozens of the bastards.

Bird flu has been around for ever, but evidently got the hump while Covid hogged the viral limelight. Now it's back with a vengeance, ensuring everyone and H5N-y-1 knows its name.

Predictably enough, concern is largely reserved for the economic impact of farmed chickens getting the deadly snuffle. But what about skewered skuas or puff-less puffins? Can anything be done to stop them falling from the sky? Might it, I dunno, involve NOT TREATING SENTIENT BEINGS SO GROTESQUELY?

Also this week, babble respects are paid to James Lovelock, maverick scientist and father of the Gaia theory, who's dropped off his own perch at the ripe old age of 103.

Solar energy saves lives in hospital during Assam Floods One of the main problems during the floods is the complete disconnection of essential services. Electricity disruption in hospitals and a lack of fuel for running generators have become a yearly problem in Assam. To address this World resources institute, India has piloted a project on adding solar panels to provide uninterrupted electricity to hospitals and the difference has been noticed this year during the floods. So talk about this, the host of Climate Emergency Podcast, Rakesh Kamal, spoke with Masfique of WRI and Mr Johnson Singson from  Burroughs Memorial Christian hospital society.See for privacy information.

#085 What Happened to Our Energy Security? As you have likely heard me say before, sustainability is your best security blanket. But part of being sustainable is managing as many of your personal resources as possible. After all, as long as someone else is in control of your resources, someone else is in control of your life. It really doesn’t make any of us feel secure when someone else decides when we get electricity and when we don’t. Yet that is what happens when there are rolling blackouts. I don’t think any of us would have ever predicted there would be a shortage of electricity in the United States. Yet that is exactly what is happening.  If you want to hear more then listen to this episode on What Happened to Our Energy Security?Always remember to Iive sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick

Tackling Burnout and Farmer Well-Being Through Collective Selling with Amelia Ihlo Welcome to the first in a short summer series of episodes dedicated to farmer well-being.  This is my 14th season flower farming and running a small business centered around such a stunning and stressful product.  Every season brings its own set of challenges, most entirely out of my control.   This year I broke a bone and strained a tendon in my left foot in late February that has impacted my physical and mental health immensely.  I entered the intensity of spring planting season feeling hugely ineffective and burnt out. I’m used to those feelings in August each year, but never before had I felt that way in March. Acknowledging burn-out and its source and making space for it is the first step to recovery.  So I started talking about it with close farmer friends at first and then more publicly.  As I did, I heard echoed back to me all the same feelings of exhaustion, anxiety and physical pain.  I am definitely not alone. Nor are you.  My guest in this episode, Amelia Ihlo, is also a friend, which made this would-be heavy conversation flow easily. It’s proof that talking to a friend can be a huge step forward when you feel burnt out.  We both share our stories of and strategies for farmer fatigue.  Amelia, the founder of Rooted Farmers, brings a uniquely powerful tactic to the table: collective selling.  She talks about how flower collectives – or co-ops or hubs or whatever you want to call them -- have the capacity to snuff out burn-out.  Maybe you’re like me and had never thought about collective selling as a defense against burn-out, but it really makes sense once you start thinking about it in that way.  On the Rooted Farmers blog, Amelia and her team have put together a couple great post on farmer burn-out and health.  Check those out here.  Two other resources are:  Young Farmers Coalition  Rural Health Information Hub Neither I nor Amelia are mental health professionals.  Rather we are two experienced flower farmers and business women having a candid conversation.  If you need support for a well-being crisis or are worried about someone else who does, please call or text 1 800 273 8255 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.  If this episode makes you feel seen and you want to join a deeper conversation on farmer well-being, consider joining the Regenerative Flower Farmers Network, or RFFN for short. Over the past year, RFFN has developed into a safe harbor away from social media where all questions and scenarios are welcome, connections are made between farmers and experts, and experiences are shared so all members contribute to growing the knowledge of the group.  Within that framework, we have a special space dedicated to discussing and supporting farmer well-being.  Please join us there!
Earth911 Podcast: TCO Certified's Andreas Nobell on Choosing Sustainable Technology Technology and consumer electronics products have transformed life in just two generations but they’ve come with heavy environmental and social consequences, including ecosystems disrupted by mining and unrecycled ewaste. We talk with Andreas Nobell, Development Manager at TCO Development, which publishes an independent non-profit environmental and social responsibility certification for technology products, the TCO Certified label. The TCO Certified label is available for 12 types of products, including computers, mobile devices, monitors, and datacenter equipment. TCO Development is a type of consumers' union, that emerged in the technology purchasing community and works to hold the tech industry accountable for its products’ impact on people and the planet.Andreas discusses how the electronics industry is making progress by reducing the energy to make and use a phone or PC, and by discarding far less waste from the manufacturing process, reducing the use of toxins and investing to support ewaste recycling. But he, says, there is still a long way to go. You can learn more about the TCO Certified program in Earth911's recent article, Certification for Greener IT Products, and try out a search for low-impact, socially responsible electronics at

#201 Mark Toman, Founder and President of EggTech Mark Toman is the Founder & President of EggTech, as well as a forward-thinking and mission-driven entrepreneur.
Prior to founding EggTech, Mark held several strategic business development roles, focused in the areas of corporate strategy, innovation and partnership cultivation.
After being involved in the mining industry, Mark identified the possibility of utilizing a vast wastestream from liquid-egg processing operations, which would otherwise predominantly go to landfill, in the interest of offsetting the need to mine for raw material, and in hopes of being in a position to manufacture a pure form of calcium (as well as other nutritionally advantageous ingredients) for supply into the premium nutritional/ingestible markets.
Mark and his team were successful in developing an industrially-scalable and cost-effective process that has been formally patented in the US, Canada, Mexico, the EU, China, and India.
Mark was invited to sit on the Innovation Advisory Council of the Canadian Food Innovation Network (CFIN) in order to contribute to the shaping and improvement of the Canadian innovation ecosystem in the FoodTech and AgTech sectors.
Mark is a strategically-minded impact entrepreneur who is largely propelled by the desire to innovate, drive change, differentiate, and alter the landscape of an existing marketplace, while having a positive impact on the environment and create value where there previously was none, or very little thereof.
Mark holds a B.A from Dalhousie University, is a proud husband and father of 2 children. He resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
#256: 40 Degrees Famously soggy, predictably chilly. Well, not any more, cos Blighty has joined the global combustability club after turning in a world-beating and very much oven-ready 40.3 degrees C of scorchiosity in its latest heatwave.

So how freaked out should we feel? Cos like, this was always going to happen wasn't it? And, as sure as tropical night follows sweltering day, it's only going to get hotter from here.

But does extreme weather's inevitability in anyway dent its horror? Will the fact that much of London ACTUALLY CAUGHT ON FIRE change inhofe-ish minds about the need for climate action?

What, in other words, The Hell are we supposed to make of all this?

Earth911 Podcast: Author Peter Fiekowsky on Climate Restoration In a conversation sure to fire controversy, author and Foundation for Climate Restoration founder Peter Feikowsky expresses optimism that the world could reach net-zero emissions and begin to drawdown atmospheric CO2 and methane levels within a decade. In a wide-ranging discussion with host Mitch Ratcliffe, Peter introduces several carbon capture technologies, low-carbon concrete, and natural carbon sinks that can contribute to removing anthropogenic CO2. He explains them in a new book, Climate Restoration: The Only Future That Will Sustain the Human Race. For example, using an inexpensive approach to remove methane, which warms the planet almost 28 times faster than CO2, called Enhanced Atmospheric Methane Oxidation (EAMO), he argues we can reduce warming to 2005 levels. Ocean iron fertilization (OIF), which stimulates phytoplankton growth, could be harnessed to pull much of the excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, but faces extensive criticism from environmentlists. These approaches require billions, not trillions of dollars, he argues.His optimism extends to the energy industry, which he says could turn over and adopt renewable fuels by 2030 based on adoption of electric vehicles and urgent public concern about extreme weeather, drought and sea level rise. The job of reversing climate change begins when society acheives net-zero emissions, at that point we will have only stopped fueling the fire. We need to remove a trillion tons of CO2 emitted by humans over the past 240 years in order to cool the planet.  Peter shares suggestions about what every one can do to contribute to lower emissions. Having smaller families is key, but even writing letters to the editor, voting and sharing information and ideas with family and friends can make a difference. We also discuss how climate pessimism shares some features of the pre-Y2K doomsaying. This interview has something for everyone and probably will elicit strong reaction.

81: BOGS! (Again) Celebrating natural carbon sequestration for #WorldBogDay You might be wondering why we’ve popped an episode in your feed on a Sunday instead of a Wednesday, so I’m here to clear that up. Today is actually world bog day, a day in which we all celebrate the awesomeness of this underrated habitat, which is fantastic at quietly getting on with an immense amount of carbon sequestration as well as supporting its own army of specialist plants and animals. About a year and a half ago we recorded an episode on bogs, and today is the perfect time to resurface it and for you to find out exactly why I think bogs are super cool. So, if you missed it before, here’s For What It’s Earth, on BOGS!

#084 The True Cost of Sustainable Living For years I’ve heard complaints about how expensive it is to live off the grid. Now I hear all about how expensive it is to live sustainably. But is this really true? And even if it is, no matter what the cost, is our convenience really worth compromising our future on this planet? In this episode I want to closely examine several aspects of sustainable living and compare costs. At least if I do that then you will know which lifestyle is more expensive.  So stayed tuned for E84 which focuses on the true cost of sustainable living. Welcome back everyone to the Adventures in Sustainable Living Podcast. This is your host Patrick and this is E84 which is called The True Cost of Sustainable Living
Deep Dive: Dr. Marc Slattery, Coral Reef Chemistry and Drugs from the Sea The future of our pharmaceuticals are from down under.... the surface of course!Coral reefs are the new tropical rainforests when it comes to drug research. When you think about it, how else do you protect yourself when you are a sea sponge, you can't move, don't have any spines or spikes and are free game for any of the thousands of species living nearby? Well chemistry of course! Turns out some of this chemistry may help with the future of our pharmaceuticals!In today's episode we chat with Dr. Marc Slattery from the University of Mississippi all about his work trying to uncover the future of pharmaceuticals from reefs around the world.For more information on the future of drugs from the sea and Dr. Marc Slattery's research click here.

Here are a couple organisations doing great work in Coral Reef Conservation, Restoration and Research!The Coral Reef Alliance  As one of the largest global NGOs focused exclusively on protecting coral reefs, the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) has used cutting-edge science and community engagement for nearly 30 years to reduce direct threats to reefs and to promote scalable and effective solutions for their protection.Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology works on coral reefs, tropical marine ecosystems that protect coastlines, support tourism, and provide nutrition to many island nations. Our focus is on defining biological traits that drive the differences in performance among corals and reefs.The Coral Restoration Foundation We are actively restoring coral reefs on a massive scale, educating others on the importance of our oceans, and using science to further coral research and coral reef monitoring techniques. The Coral Reef Research Foundation is based in Palau and does original research to acquire the knowledge needed to understand and make intelligent decisions related to conservation, climate change and resource management.The Mote Marine Laboratory Coral Reef Restoration Program in Florida, US develops and applies science-based strategies with the goal of restoring depleted coral reefs in our lifetime. Specifically, Mote researchers are working to optimize restoration using diverse coral genotypes (genetic varieties), prioritizing native genetic varieties that can resist SCTLD and other stressors such as increased water temperatures and ocean acidification.
Earth911 Podcast: Environmental Attorney Kenneth Foard McCallion on the Supreme Court's EPA Ruling Kenneth Foard McCallion, an environmental attorney who successfully litigated cases involving the Exxon Valdez and Bhopal Gas disasters, discusses the consequences of the recent Supreme Court decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency. In a 6-3 decision in West Virginia v EPA, the conservative justices decided the agency cannot create comprehensive policies to reduce global warming. McCallion argues that the Supreme Court has “dealt a body blow to this country’s climate change policies.” The irony is that the Court claims it is returning power to the states and people when 68% of Americans surveyed by Pew Research Center in 2019 said they believe government should be acting to “reduce the effect of global climate change.” Even 39% of Republicans who responded to that survey agree the government is not doing enough. Congress has relied on experts in agencies like the EPA to formulate policies in response to rapidly changing scientific insight into the environment because legislation takes too long to develop. Now, the Court has undercut that authority.

Episode 8: Andy Dessler Born to a space physicist father, Andy Dessler was steeped in science and academia from birth. Unlike other children of successful academics, he never perceived his father’s profession and the implicit expectations put on him as a burden, but soon decided that science was what he wanted to do as well.
Andy describes how his career was strongly influenced, at many critical junctures (including where to go to grad school) by his dad. So this keeps with a little theme of parents and children that we seem to have this season.
Andy and Adam are more or less contemporaries and have quite a few things in common. They both started out working in the stratosphere, on topics related to the ozone problem. In fact the first scientific seminar Adam went to as a new graduate student was given by Andy, right after his own thesis defense. So this was a conversation between two people who understand each other pretty well.
The ozone problem was more or less solved by the time Andy was a postdoc, and so, wanting to be where the action was, he switched, and started working on tropospheric water vapor, and from there he got into climate change. This continues to be a theme in Andy’s research: he works on something for a while, but when he senses it’s tapped out, he changes direction, and he’s done this a few times. Perhaps all scientists do this, but Andy has done it more consciously and maybe more often than others.
I tell graduate students that all the time, I say, “In 10 or 15 years, you’re not gonna be working on this. So you need to learn how to do research.” If you know how to do research, you can do anything, that’s really the key: to come up with hypotheses, read the literature, do stuff like that… […] There’s a huge amount of data out there, just mountains of data that you can download, and it’s really exciting. I’m having a great time.”
At least as much as for his scientific research, Andy stands out for his public engagement. For many years, he has been writing and speaking to broad audiences about climate. He has written blogs, op-eds, books, and he’s active on social media. He hasn’t shied away from the political, despite having told himself, early in his career, that he would. So he and Adam talk about how that happened, including the time he spent, early in his career, at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
In the last couple of years, Andy’s research has moved into climate impacts. He’s studying the Texas power grid, for example, and generally looking for ways to understand the risks due to extreme weather events and climate change, and to contribute to climate adaptation. Making this shift, at this point in time and in their careers, is another thing he and Adam have in common.
The interview with Andy Dessler was recorded in February 2022.

Episode 7: Sandra Yuter Growing up on Long Island, Sandra Yuter loved to go on field trips—she learned about how glaciers had shaped the environment around her and was fascinated by how the resulting landscape still told the history of its geological past. The combination of scientific exploration and imagination that these field trips offered was something Sandra also drew to science fiction, another passion that she shares with Adam.
Sandra has turned her interest in science into a career; she is a distinguished professor at the department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University. Her research uses measurements made by remote sensors, including radar, satellite, and lidar, as well as in situ measurements, to understand processes in the atmosphere, especially those related to clouds and precipitation. And occasionally, she even gets to be a bit of a science fiction writer herself:

And it turned out I was particularly good at writing proposals and my lab manager […] explained that proposal writing is a lot like writing science fiction because you’re basing it on what’s here today, but you’re sort of pushing the technology a bit. […] If you think about my interest and all my background reading in hard science fiction, which is what’s gonna be going on 10 years from now, or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now, you could sort of translate that to, “Okay, given what we can do right now, what can we do two years from now or five years from now?”

Sandra has made important advances on a wide range of meteorological problems, including the structure, dynamics, and cloud microphysics of deep convection in the tropics; shallow stratocumulus-topped boundary layers; and winter storms in the extratropics.
Methodologically, Sandra’s work has contributed to the algorithms used to retrieve precipitation from satellite measurements, and to the diagnostic methods used to infer physical processes in precipitating clouds from radar observations. As one particularly prominent example, the contoured frequency by altitude diagram, or CFAD, that she conceived more than 25 years ago is now a standard and widely used diagnostic.
As an “observationalist”, Sandra has done a lot of field campaigns, and she talks here with Adam about some of the challenges of these campaigns, the decline of the routine observational network, and the way the prominence of climate “reanalysis” data sets (which are observation-based, but not literally observations) may have contributed to that.
Later in the conversation, Adam and Sandra also get into the questions of how to do usable science and contribute to solutions to the climate crisis. Sandra’s view on this is informed by her early experiences doing science in the private sector, including at a defense contracting company before grad school. But more recently, like Adam, she’s been thinking more broadly about how to do science that may have a concrete impact. And that conversation leads them into solar geoengineering, the role of the private sector in climate and weather science, and other topics.

I think atmospheric science has done a really good job of explaining and understanding the climate problem, but maybe we’re not the solution, maybe the solution is more on the engineering side, and partly, that’s just building buildings that are more resilient or moving infrastructure, or figuring out how to do carbon capture in a scalable way, or investing in fusion […]. Maybe we should just say, “Hey, we’ve done a really good job explaining the problem, giving you the likely scenarios and the potential timing of those scenarios. But the actual more pragmatic solutions are not what we do.”

#255: Green Capitalism? How much, precisely, is one whale worth? Half an elephant? Three dozen gibbons?

"Don't be silly, Ol and Dave, you can't put a price on nature" we hear you cry. Well tell it to the IMF, because they say our blubbery friends retail for $2m, a big figure which, in the world of excel spreadsheets and cost benefit analyses, means whales are worth saving. Unlike, say, earwigs, who aren't priced up and therefore can extinctify themselves without wider consequences.

Bonkers, no? Well that's what Adrienne Buller, author of fab new book The Value of a Whale: On the illusions of Green Capitalism wants us to think about.

Because there is also an argument that goes 1) everything's dead or dying, 2) the powerful only care about money, 3) give animals a dollar value & men in suits might prefer them alive, 4) NOTHING ELSE SEEMS TO BE WORKING SO LET'S GIVE THIS A SHOT, EH?

We discuss.

80: Eco-Anxiety. What is it, and how can we deal with it? Many of us feel an existential sense of doom and dread when we think about the state of the environment. (Record-smashing temperatures of 40oC in the UK this week, anyone?) It can wreak havoc with our mental health, and be hard to deal with. In fact, feeling eco anxiety is a perfectly normal reaction to being told that we're in a climate crisis.
In this episode we explore some of the causes of eco anxiety and some of the possible solutions, or tools that might help you when you're feeling stressed. We hope that it might help.
This episode also features a clip sent over by our friend Suzy from the Casual Birder Podcast. Suzy has visited Antarctica and, after listening to our episode on the White Continent, was kind enough to share her experience of responsible tourism.

Earth911 Podcast: URB-E's Charles Jolley Wants to Electrify Local Delivery Charles Jolley, CEO of URB-E, want to disrupt the local delivery infrastructure. URB-E is building a local container delivery network using ebikes and collapsible containers that are pedaled around cities and neighborhoods. The company says a single delivery person can pull up to 800 pounds of stuff, which is sufficient to replace an internal combustion delivery van. URB-E has launched in New York and Los Angeles, where riders can earn between $18 and $24 an hour, with paid time off. The company’s mission is “to be the global leader in foldable, emission-free transportation solutions.”The last mile in the supply chain, between a distribution center and a retail location or your home, has been the focus of innovation over the past century, starting when United Parcel Service was founded in Seattle using bikes. The evolution of on-demand delivery, however, became enmeshed with fossil fuel-powered cars and vans, and we’re still paying the price. What could last mile deliveries look like in a post-carbon society? It may resemble the founding of UPS, but with logistics and electric bike technology taking the place of pedal power.

Financing Energy Efficiency Investments Problem:It is a critical time for energy efficiency. Despite its recognised importance, improvements have fallen short of expectations. Energy efficiency increase amounted to only around 2% per year between 2011 and 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic further hit energy efficiency efforts hard. In 2020, improvements were estimated to be only 0.8%, which is substantially lower than the SDG target of 2.6% per year. The International Energy Agency finds that progress on energy efficiency globally recovered in 2021 to a pre-pandemic pace but remained well short of what would be needed to help put the world on track to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century.The inadequate improvements stem from insufficient energy efficiency investments, despite the ostensibly strong business case for energy efficiency. While wind and solar power investments have increased substantially, energy efficiency investments have not grown at an equal pace. Global investments in energy efficiency have not risen significantly in recent years.Key message:A path towards reaching net zero emissions by 2050 requires total annual investment in energy efficiency worldwide to triple by 2030. Financing energy efficiency investments must be feasible and include a broad set of instruments, including equity-based financing.Speakers: Elisabeth Resch, Alexander AblazaSupport: Aristeidis Tsakiris
Startup Series: Calwave Today's guest is Marcus Lehmann, CEO and Co-Founder of CalWave. Our planet’s surface is mostly covered by ocean, but harnessing the power of our ceaseless water world has not been a considerable part of the energy mix to date.

Listener Question - Do We Get Hurricanes? A listener in Bothell asked if the North Sound region gets hurricanes. This Podcast addresses that question and the answer may surprise you.
Rip currents, marine flags and saildrones Over the fourth of July weekend there were at least three ocean rescues due to Rip Currents. How can you tell if this dangerous condition is present on your trip to the beach? How about if there are jellyfish or other pests present? Flags are used to communicate such threats. We have what they mean. Plus saildrones are making a splash again and this time Florida is the Focus. That's on this issue of Weather or Not?.
New NOAA satellite and we talk Uranus There's a new satellite in Space designed to improve our forecasts. It may also help NASA forecast Space Weather as well! And how do you pronounce "Uranus"? (Giggles in the crowd). Find out on this week's edition of Weather or Not?.

#083 Thinking Upstream I often marvel at the complexity and enormity of the natural world. Consider for a moment the Mississippi River. This river discharges almost 4.5 million gallons of water per second. But it doesn’t start out that way. I got to wondering what I would find if I went upstream? Where does this river come from? Well, one day as I was sitting by the creek below my cabin, I got to wondering the same thing. What would I find if I went upstream?  Well, finding the answer to that question created quite an adventure that resulted in a close encounter with a really big bear.Stay tuned if you want to hear that story and find out why thinking upstream is vital to our sustainability. Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future.
#82 Walls, Weapons, and Wisdom We pay our federal income taxes every year as a “price of civilization” and then we sit back and watch our government spend our tax dollars like an irresponsible teenager with a credit card. Furthermore I sit back and observe this massive machine of civilization that we have created and wonder how it is that we got so far off track. After all focusing on a sustainability does not seem difficult to me.  But this possibility of a sustainable future is too often clouded by the mighty powers that still insist on building walls and weapons. But I am of the opinion it is time to change our conventional wisdom on such matters.If you want to enjoy one of the few times that I will make a political statement, then listen to this episode on Walls, Weapons and Wisdom.Always remember to live sustainably because this is how we build a better future. Patrick
Energy Efficiency Financing Problem:There is a fundamental disconnect between the finance community and energy efficiency. The Mission Efficiency Financing Charette was convened to undo this disconnect. The charette brought together two groups: the world’s finance community (private sector, development banks, philanthropic organisations, climate finance facilities, etc.) and the projects and initiatives.Key message:To address current gaps and facilitate commitments to work together to redefine investing in energy efficiency projects and launch an energy efficiency market readiness initiative at COP27.Speakers: Gabriela Prate Dias, Steven Kukoda, Brian DeanSupport: Aristeidis Tsakiris
Engineering a New Water World In our third bonus episode of the summer season, we look back at the innovative ways people are sourcing their freshwater, from building home water systems on the Navajo Nation to engineering a state of the art wastewater treatment facility in Orange County.

Think Tank - Managing your ESG reporting ESG – a holistic concept that has roots dating back to the 1960s, has evolved over the decades gaining more traction in recent years within the corporate sustainability context.Referring to the environmental (‘E’), social (‘S’) and governance (‘G’) pillars within the sustainability framework, they are key to addressing the impacts of corporate activities and investments on people and the planet.With the current lack of unified reporting standards, definition and many frameworks influencing the ESG space, we gathered a network of experts and an all-star panel from different industries, contexts and trajectories to discuss the challenges and highlight opportunities around ESG reporting – from regulation and standardization to quality data collection and the measurement of impact.This think tank was run by Goumbook in partnership with Emex and hosted by Jumeirah Group in their flagship hotel Burj Al Arab on 3rd of June, 2022. It included a presentation by Daniel Gribbin - VP of Sustainability and ESG at Emex, and a panel discussion that was moderated by Tatiana Antonelli Abella, featuring Mohamad El Khalil - Director of Prudential Supervision at DFSA, Mariam Alqubaisi - Head of Sustainability and Business Excellence at Etihad, Adrienne Doolan - CEO of Green Touches and Board Member of UN Global Compact Network UAE, and Ashraf Abdelkhalek - Sustainability, Health and Safety Leader for Gulf Countries at Schneider Electric.
Earth911 Podcast: Eve Darian-Smith on Global Burning: Rising Antidemocracy and the Climate Crisis Author Eve Darian-Smith discusses her new book, Global Burning: Rising Antidemocracy and the Climate Crisis, which describes and analyzes the environmental policies of authoritarian governments, including the Trump and Bolsanaro administrations in the U.S. and Brazil, as well as Australia’s recently deposed Prime Minister, Scott Morrison. She is chair of the Department of Global and International Studies at the University of California, Irvine. Eve has documented the growing crisis for democratic nations as authoritarian leaders blend anti-environmentalist populism with increasingly aggressive approaches to governing. Climate change is a global problem that nationalists and populists resist actively. With the United States headed into a contentious mid-term election season, we wanted to discuss what voters should be on the watch for when choosing candidates they expect to represent them in global negotiations in response to climate change.

Earth911 Podcast: Fordham University's Frank Zambrelli on Scaling ESG Solutions in Fashion Frank Zambrelli, Executive Director of Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business Responsible Business Coalition, discusses the school's recommendations for sustainability and transparency in the fashion industry. He explains findings in Accenture's recently released a report, Scaling ESG Solutions in Fashion, which identified seven areas of focus required for sustainable changes to the fashion industry. They include industry-wide adoption of transparent emissions reductions goals of 50% by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2040, use of renewable energy in manufacturing, elimination of the use of restricted chemicals, and fair labor practices across every step of the fashion supply chain in order to turn the industry into a sustainable one.Fashion may make us look and feel good but it does no favors for the planet, accounting for up to 8% of global greenhouse gas emission annually and providing many examples of egregious treatment of labor in low-income countries. Frank also explains the intentions behind New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand's Fashion Accountability and Building Real Institutional Change Act, or FABRIC Act, which the U.S. Senate is currently considering. It would require moving fashion production back to the U.S. under better environmental and labor standards than other countries enforce.

Earth911 Podcast: cirplus Cofounder Christian Schiller Aims for a Circular Plastics Marketplace Christian Schiller, cofounder of cirplus, talks about the company's digital marketplace for circular plastics. Think of it as or Tinder for European plastics recyclers, including companies that collect post-consumer materials and those that sell processed recycled plastic for use in new products. Cirplus connects sellers with buyers and collects fees for speeding the transaction along. Sellers save on marketing costs and can establish ongoing relationships that support their business growth with just a few clicks. cirplus is working now to launch its U.S. marketplace. Christian also discusses the prospects for bioplastics and emerging plastic recycling technologies, including molecular recycling, which will purportedly make plastic recyclable many more times than today.The plastics industry desperately needs to step up its recycling — less than 6% of the approximately 370 million tons of plastic produced each year is recycled today. Recycling is all about economics, and making it profitable depends on gaining reliable access to supplies of recyclable materials as well as customers who are ready to buy the processed material. Christian previously helped to build BlaBlaCar, where we was the first employee at the online transportation market that connects drivers and bus operators to riders. Digital technology, as we often hear from our guests, creates efficiencies that make previously difficult markets come to life. You can learn more about cirplus at

#254: Luke Turner Meets Sustainababble Epping Forest, or "Effing Forest" as it's known to the locals, is at the heart of Luke Turner's wonderful 2019 book about sexuality, trauma, god and personal recovery.

The forest, Luke says, hums with an energy of people both enjoying the place but also getting up to things they can't do, and being people they can't be, in their normal lives. It's a human landscape, and kinda always has been - in contrast to the hippified, somewhat problematic idea of 'untouched' woodland.

And despite all its undeniable loveliness, it's not necessarily a place which magically 'cures' your ills, no matter what forest-bathing evangelists might claim.

We natter to Luke about all this, covering off grumble mags, Throbbing Gristle, Peter Lilley MP and the soullnessness of St Albans along the way.

As you may have gathered, this week's episode features what prudes describe as 'adult themes', so you might want to avoid it if you're listening with kids and don't fancy trying to explain what a jazz mag is.

You can find Luke's article about the pandemic and inequality of access to nature here.
