COP26: All you need to know – Highgrade Media

At COP26 I think we did better than I’d expected and nothing like good enough, is my general feeling. I think the tone was interesting, rather than the specifics of the outcome – which everybody’s commentaries focused on – the tone was interesting, because it was a much greater sense […]

Beyond COP26. The EU and the UK join forces to reach net zero – EEAS

COP26 certainly wasn’t a flop. It didn’t take us to where we need to get to, but it did take us a step forward into the really hard work of delivering on the Paris Agreement. So, I think that it took us somewhere. I think what surprised people was the […]

GOVERNING THE CLIMATE

We live in turbulent times. Some eight billion of us live in an increasingly connected world. The pace of technology-enabled change is accelerating. This can be both exhilarating, as new opportunities and experiences become accessible, and intimidating, as familiar places and relationships are transformed beyond recognition. This accelerating pace of […]

Tom Burke – E3G – Climate change is impacting our lives right now – Talk Radio

COP26 has certainly achieved something, it’s just not achieved enough. I think we are continuing to turn the corner we started turning in Paris. We are moving from a policy where we are trying to constrain things, to one in which were increasingly trying to take the opportunities of solving […]

Will climate and energy policy move forward at COP26? – GB News

COP26 is very serious, and we had better hope it gets somewhere because if it doesn’t get somewhere, then we are all going to be in a lot of trouble. I think three things need to come out of it. The first thing that we need to do is deliver […]

Will enough progress be made at COP26? – LBC

I am definitely looking forward COP26. I am both looking forward to getting a good result, and I am looking forward to being over. It has been pretty much at the centre of my life for the whole of this year, so I’ll be glad when we are done. COP1 […]

Why we are incredibly vulnerable to energy price spikes – LBC

We do have to understand there’s a cost associated with reaching net-zero and a reducing our carbon emissions, just as we have to understand that if we fail, if our climate policy fails, then there will also be a very big cost associated with that. So, it is a question […]

Investing in energy efficiency would offset gas price rises – Times Radio

What this levy will do, is it will balance up the relative cost of gas or electricity for heating our homes. Right now, the green levies fall on electricity, which puts its price up. They don’t fall on gas, which means you’re not getting a clear signal on which way […]

What has happened to government promises to improve the energy efficiency of our buildings? R4 Today

There is not very much government help available for people who are concerned about the energy prices rising and who want to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. There is the ECO scheme, which is available to help people improve the energy efficiency of their houses. But about 80% […]

Is the COP26 agenda making the energy crisis worse? – GB News

The energy crisis is a very bad way to put a carbon price on, which is a favorite tool of economists for solving the climate problem. I certainly wouldn’t want to do it this way because it has a really bad impact on those who are least able to bear […]
