Episode 41 - It's a bit like Xmas

6/28/2024
This week, we're in a whirlwind of events. Dale's shares his excitement about the upcoming election, comparing it to a kid waiting for Christmas. He shares his experiences marching for nature with Chris Packham and Emma Thompson. We tackle the 'cow in the room' - the massive role animal agriculture plays in the nature and climate crisis. Plus, we dive into how Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites could mess with the Earth's ozone layer when they deorbit. All this with some cracking questions from our listeners...:)

Episode 40 - Cut the green crap

6/20/2024
This week, we’ve got Newsnight behind the scenes, Reform’s not-manifesto, Farage being ‘stitched up’, and a GB News apology in the dead of night. While we run a calculator over Cameron’s infamous ‘cut the green crap’ period, there’s a new development on the popcorn front, and we look at the idea of vegan ghettos… all with a sprinkling of fab listener questions.

Episode 39 - Popcorn and nuts...

6/14/2024
This week, Europe has outbreaks, but our right wing nut in the chair is from the unreformed party (it’s proper nutty). We talk elections as ‘Two Fleets’ Sunak launches the manifesto we all knew was coming, and we look at the $41 trillion the world just spent on the climate. We talk dangerous food, McDonald's, ice cream, and the four big industries that are literally licensed to kill us. And the pro-democracy campaign that tried to use the House of Commons to encourage voting - and got shut down by the cops.

Episode 38 - A tale of two sausages

6/7/2024
Spoilt this week by an abundance of right-wing nuttery - headlined by Tice claiming ‘it was the sun wot did it.’ We try desperately not to mention Coutinho (and fail), but it was a Godzilla-sized solar farm that that did for us. We talk paratroopers with passports, part of Farage’s legacy, as he parachutes into the election (and Tice’s chair). This time, he can only do good because the mission is ‘Just Stop the Tories.’ We look at Sunak repeating the mistakes of Cameron, and Dale reveals a new study that maps 'the cost of cutting the green crap.’ Plus, a new campaign - Just Vote. We have a tale of two sausages… and some great news for Piers Morgan, with fabulous listener questions indelibly written throughout…

Episode 37 - Redwoods and green dystopias

5/31/2024
Giant Redwoods and little ones, green dystopias, and the white blokes wot did it – we've got a shed full of wing nuttery. We look at a stunning new viewpoint on green energy and ask how many Tory MPs have voted for positive climate action since Cameron the Husky Hugger... the answer may surprise you. New food stats suggest Brits are so over meat, and with fab listener contributions again, we're cooking. All this with just five weeks before this series, ‘Just Stop the Tories,’ comes to a natural end...:)

Episode 36 - Things can only get Wetter

5/24/2024
As Sunak fires the starting gun and Just Stop the Tories approaches the end game... we've got a bag of right-wing nuts, some China nonsense, and Dale talking meat taxes with The Sun. Staying on a food theme, we also look at Fish and Ships. All capped off with a weather update and punctuated by a fab selection of listener questions. You gotta love it...:)

Episode 35 - If Romans had nukes...

5/17/2024
"We have a new headline act in the right wing nut box this week and a support act nobody ever heard of. And then there’s Right Said Fred. We ask that favourite question of all right wingers and climate procrastinators - ‘what about India?' We put ourselves in the shoes of vegans with smelly meat eating neighbours, have a quick look at Great British Energy and the new gas power station with a typo in its name - plus a couple of fabulous questions. You gotta love it."

Episode 34 - Tumbleweeds

5/10/2024
In this week's jam packed episode our right wing nut section threatens to takeover as we revisit Moggy gate and update on a slew of legal actions that, one by one - are being lost. We welcome a Labour MP to the fold and introduce a new jingle - the tumbleweed... Green energy makes big strides towards the global takeover we all need, April offers more records but no new news and a new opinion poll offers a shocking outlook - from the worlds top climate boffins. Fab listener questions again and a hoot all round...:)

Episode 33 - Think twice like Tice

5/3/2024
This week kicks off with our fave - the right wingnuts… There’s a legal update and we talk about Rees-Mogg, the posh man’s Julia Hartley-Brewer, and his claims so wildly untrue they’re almost laughable - we fact check him, hard (and yes, it riles Dale up...). The Welsh Government plans to clamp down on exactly this kind of thing - making it illegal for politicians to lie. Big Oil's lies are the stuff of legend, a new expose confirms. Meanwhile, climate change is not the end of the world, says Cambridge Prof, which Dale agrees… We also talk planes powered by sewage, and field some fab questions, not least about the Massive Attack gig, WOMAD, and the ‘Grid Faeries’.

Episode 32 - The right-wing nut cluster

4/26/2024
Several overlapping Right-Wing Nut stories this week, a reform candidate that makes Julia Hartley-Brewer look like Mother Theresa, wind energy in Britain kicks butt on the grid, the EU exits a very bad deal (but stays on the hook) - we have a new study on food, questions about Taylor Swift's footprint - and we ask does the SNP have a self-destruct button. Oh and some good news for climate protest and some not so. Keep them fab questions coming.

Episode 30 - The Great British Fake Off

4/15/2024
Thrill packed episode this one as Dale takes us through a fake Net Zero project the government has given permission for. With lawsuits flying in the right-wing nut space, we examine what on earth is going on in the water industry. Plus a look at global temperatures and positive feedback loops (not as good as it might sound), while M&S research shows the best way of stopping cows from burping and farting… Oh, and a bit of Brexit, punctured with a spot-on listener question.

Episode 29 - Call that an apology?

4/5/2024
Dale gives an update on Guido Gate and why we should be expecting to hear more responses back from Tory MPs and the rest… one down, three to go! As we continue to guess when the next election will be, we share a shocking story about how 57 companies are linked to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions - defying the Paris Accords. We also bring you another Brexit calamity… this time about farmers. Plus Dale explains why we need to reform our tax system and why climate denial should be made illegal. Keep your fab questions coming in!

Episode 28 - A Tory Distraction

3/25/2024
Rip-roaring episode this week as we take our usual irreverent look at the green and ungreen news of the week, featuring Brexit: the gift that keeps (not) giving, a new approach to wing nuts, more mud-slinging at Dale, what's threatening Easter eggs and - to our ability to think, free of criminal charges... punctuated as ever by fab questions.

Episode 27 - More Fossil Foolery

3/15/2024
It's been a very eventful week for Dale, as we look at Sunak’s dodgy donors, his mathematically challenged plan to burn more fossil fuels and we circle back to the costs of 'cutting the green crap’. Plus, we have some mind-blowing stats on warming oceans, more Right Wing Nuts popping up, and Dale talks about his recent book events for Manifesto.

Episode 26 - A Rishi Sunak State of Mind

3/8/2024
Dale and Ian are in fine form this week tearing up Hunt’s budget and talking up Dale’s alternative green one - it’s pulled straight from the latest edition of Dale’s book Manifesto. Zerocarbonista bravely delves into the depths of Rishi Sunak’s state of mind and we learn about the poison linking bees, Brexit and erm…Piers Morgan - and a Labour ban. And we hear about something new you can buy in Tesco - WWF. We answer more great questions ranging from the threat of AI and ultra processed foods to the House of Lords and our diet. Don’t you dare miss it.

Episode 25 - Mob Rule?

3/1/2024
Sunak reclaims the “Right Wing Nut” title, rather easily with last week’s stunts… mobs with tractors are ok apparently. Mexico City approaches “Day Zero” - the day 22 million people run out of water, and we look at the sheer madness of everything about Drax; granted billions in subsidies for burning rare Canadian forests - while claiming green credentials. Sunak searches for a “green messenger” that people will trust, clearly he has to go out of house for that. Musk gets a mention. And we answer more great questions (keep 'em coming) and discuss what's new in the third edition of Manifesto which is out next week.

Episode 24 - From Eco Zealot to Mega Donor

2/23/2024
Dale’s got a new nickname. It’s mega but what’s the significance? We discuss who’s rigging our legal system against climate activists in the midst of the hottest February ever recorded. Speaking of the Tories, there’s some double bluffing going on, and would a government department ever bury bad news for farmers? Plus Dale waxes lyrical on wind-powered oil tankers, and we get a green gas update. Keep those questions coming!

Episode 23 - Thank God for China!

2/16/2024
Dale chats with a brand new Right Wing Nut this week, as a bombshell mega poll predicts Armageddon for the Tories at the next election. With the UK now in a recession, have Sunak’s five pledges vapourised? We talk EV charging apps, Veganuary hitting a new record, and why we need a new category to classify mega-hurricanes. Plus, we expose the true cost of “cutting the green crap” within housebuilding, why the Atlantic Ocean is nearing tipping point, and Dale’s favourite recent climate success story.
