Politicians the world over have been scurrying around for climate pledges in preparation for today’s Climate Summit, called by President Biden. Today Phil Dobbie talks to environment journalist Lucy Siegle about what, if anything, will be achieved. Can climate change be stalled by political pledges that may, or may not be adhered to? What was really been achieved by the Paris Climate Accord, and is there much to be gained from the US trying, now, to take the lead on the environment? More significantly, are consumers prepared to accept the sacrifices that are needed if we are to save the planet? Lots of big questions crammed in to a half hour show!
