And to achieve that, they've launched both#CEOCarbonNeutralChallenge and Equilibrium.Gucci.com. Listen in to hear how they're going to do it. And before that interview, our guest co-host this week is Lucy Siegle, Nature and Climate Journalist/Writer, focusing in on plastics and the fashion industry.

Introducing: So Hot Right Now

To save the world we need to change the story. Nature and the climate are in crisis. To survive we must use our most powerful tool - communication. Telling these stories can be difficult and dangerous. But done right they can change the world. Join environmental journalist Lucy Siegle (The Guardian, The One Show) and wildlife filmmaker Tom Mustill (Greta Thunberg / #NatureNow & BBC Natural History Unit) as they learn how to communicate better, from those who do it best. This episode looks at the work of the world’s premiere nature broadcaster, one of the most trusted voices in the world. We ask Sir David Attenborough what he has learnt, what he would do if he was starting his career now, how we can use wonder to fight for nature and what we need to do immediately. Listen HERE to the full episode!

Introducing: So Hot Right Now

Seize the Moment with Teresa Ribera and Thomas Thune Andersen

EA landmark draft law brought forward in Spain would ban all new coal, gas, and oil projects and bring Spain's carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050. Why is right now, in the middle of a health crisis, the right moment for this? We speak to Spanish Vice President and Minister of The Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, and get her courageous reasons. So if oil and gas are being phased out, how do energy companies make the switch? We speak with current Chair of renewable energy company Ørsted, Thomas Thune Andersen. Ørsted was recently named "Most Sustainable Company In The World" after transitioning from extracting fossil fuels to a company that harnesses 30% of all global wind energy.

Tom Crowther and The Power of Nature

It's International Biodiversity Day and we're celebrating in style! We talk with Prof. Dr. Tom Crowther of Crowther Lab, ETH Zürich, who captured the imagination of the world with the idea that our world could support another trillion trees, and how that could restore a new world through carbon drawdown, create a better world with more biodiversity, provide the roadmap to a regenerated world which right now we can only dream of. His research has galvanized many to begin restoration efforts, including the least likely of suspects, Donald J. Trump. What do you do when a climate denier supports your work on climate change? Tom Crowther answers in this episode. We also discuss the four principlesNature-Based Solutionswhich, among all the emerging guidelines and standards, are critical for successful restoration and conservation, avoiding "green-washing" of solutions that cover up escalating emissions. After the interview, Christiana and Clay spring a guess-that-animal-sound game on the rest of the Outrage and Optimism team and one particular host refuses to lose. Come say hello to us online!
