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 […]

Trump says PM is making a big mistake backing wind power. He is wrong. – GB News

To focus on public subsidies for renewables is only telling part of the truth. The rest of the truth is that we also subsidize our existing fossil fuel industries, BP and Shell and others like them around the world still get subsidies. Every nuclear power station on the planet gets […]

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

We are not investing enough in land based ways of absorbing carbon emissions – Sky News

We have underestimated the amazing loss of soil that our current agricultural practices have caused, so Prince Charles is quite right to focus on that and the soil is a tremendous absorber of carbon, so restorative, regenerative agriculture is a particularly important part of it.
