#152: BP vs the RSC

"Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides: Who cover faults, at last shame them derides" said Cordelia in King Lear.Words with which the Royal Shakespeare Company are presumably familiar, and a sentiment that was perhaps front of mind when they recently told BP to shove their sponsorship dosh where the sun shineth not.Kierra Box, from activist group 'BP or Not BP?' joins us to explain how a bunch of stage-invading, ruff-wearing hippies gave the RSC no choice but to dish out a spectacular "it's not us, it's you" dumping to everyone's favourite oil major.Also this week, Extinction Rebellion are back. Does it matter if Boris Johnson slags them off? Are the public still on their side? Is that missing the whole point? We ponder.Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.

#152: BP vs the RSC

#151: Fusion

Boris Johnson has promised - PROMISED! - that good ol' Blighty is going to produce infinite clean energy within two decades. That's right, 'nuclear fusion' is just around the corner! But, er, is it really? And more importantly, what the HELL is nuclear fusion?Also this week, pine martens join the war on grey squirrels, and the poor loves at Cuadrilla retreat from Lancashire with tails between their legs.

#150: Greta

Prodigiously popular. Terrifyingly tenacious. Brilliantly bold. No silly, not Dave and Ol - we're talking about the globe-conquering, Inhofe-silencing Greta Thunberg. We investigate how come an upstart teenager from Sweden has tipped the global climate debate on its head. Isn't it all a bit - let's face it - odd? (in a good way). Are we right to pin so much of our hopes on her? And what happens when she's old enough for her haters to hate her to her face? Meanwhile the UK Labour party has signed up to net zero emissions in just over a decade. Shriek! Is that - whisper it - *too* ambitious?

#149: Naomi Oreskes meets Sustainababble

We chat to an actual proper Harvard Professor, blessed with a brain as large as her laugh. Author, activist and splendid person Naomi Oreskes - crusading scourge of Inhofes everywhere - tells us why we should trust science (spoiler: because it's science). In a giggle-packed natter, Dave and Ol learn all about how science is done when it's done properly, how come so many Americans think climate change is a communist lie, and what you should do if your dentist smells of pork. All this, and Dave gets a proper telling off for his terrible interview technique - not before time. You can follow Naomi on Twitter @naomioreskes. Her new book, 'Trust in Science', is out imminently. Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly. Theme music by the legendary Dicky Moore – @dickymoo.

#148: Trees

When we go away the Amazon burns down, Boris Johnson becomes king, and London gets as hot as a farting hippo's bottom. Sorry about that. Now. Everyone's saying we need to plant more trees everywhere, which would be fine if we stopped torching and chopping down the ones we had. Have we got any hope at all of planting (at least) half a billion more trees? Does it let Big Oil off the hook if we do? And is the world ready for Dave's soggy willows? We investigate. All this, and some proper cheeky abuse of the concept of 'net zero' by the fossil fuel lot. And the farming lot. And the aviation lot. Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.

#147: Cycling

Basically all of us learn to ride a bike, but vanishingly few grown-ups regularly cycle, especially in 'car is king' Blighty.So why is pootling around on two wheels such a niche pursuit, when the benefits and beneficiaries are so varied? And are cyclists the red-light jumping, pavement-bothering lycra zealots the press would have you believe, or just, y'know, humans who ride a bike every now and then?We discuss.Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.

#146: Nature Crisis

Someone needs to tell the UN to stop writing reports on the state of the planet. Their latest lolzfest, hot on the heels of 2018's IPCC report (aka 'Seriously, climate change is awks'), says humans are threatening A MILLION species with extinction. Tally ho!Fear not though, even in this bleakest of topics, babble was saught and - by jove - babble was found.Also this week, encourging news on the do-people-give-a-shit barometer, as a recording of birdsong soars up the UK charts and Australian voters give politicians a planet flavoured kick in the Uluru.Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.

#145: Emergency

Heavens to betsy! The UK parliament has declared a 'Climate and Ecological Emergency'. Amazing, impressive, Extinction Rebellion-vindicating stuff. But, er, so what? And what now? And does it make those wonks telling the UK to eradicate (ish) emissions by 2050 wildly ambitious, hopelessly weedy, or somewhere in between?Also this week, Gammons getting angry with Percy Pigs, McDonalds customers failing to suck it up, and Chris Packham's majestic response to phallic abuse.Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.

#143: Glaciers

Glaciers are shrinking, which is not good. Not good for glaciers, not good for people who like sea levels just the way they are, and certainly not good for those keen to avoid literal AVALANCHES OF SHIT emerging from newly slushy ice.We pontificate.Also this week, eggs, Shell, and cars all making the news for reasons of varying smelliness.
