Hello and welcome to yet another episode of the Tech for Good Live podcast. Much like the climate crisis, we just keep getting worse and no-one in power seems to have the appetite to stop us, but this episode looks like it might be an alright one really. Above average anyway.
COP26 is happening in Glasgow, where all the world leaders get together and decide to doom us all because of, well, their own profit margins. So, we’re talking about a load of environment related stories.
We discuss the economic impact of climate change. Because we’re fun, cool people.
We also talk about an international attempt to stop deforestation, making Green Tech cheaper, and of course, we find time to laugh at that stupid Facebook rebrand.
You can find loads of great content from ClimateAction.tech and their conversations about using tech to tackle climate change on their YouTube channel.
