Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Friends, Neighbours, Teachers and Lollypop People Rise Up

Read Show Notes

We teach them about dangers like crossing the road and putting their fingers in sockets but really the most dangerous thing of all is just rolling on in the background. Adults bringing up children and children bringing up adults in a Climate Emergency. How and when do we talk about this with our kids- is it OK to scare the children?

Rebel for Life

Read Show Notes

How do you start becoming politically active? What was it like lying down in the road waiting to be arrested? How do you feel about your mum being arrested? Why are you wearing flippers and goggles? Is that a compost toilet in the road? Isn't part of the truth is we are all complicit? How do we practice loving kindness? Will this podcast contain more questions than answers?

Keep it in the Ground

Read Show Notes

If you want to 'keep it in the ground' you don't have to do anything- you just have to not buy it. A pipe dream?

Some crude conversation, slickly edited- hear it spill out.

What is carbon capture? What does it feel like to stand under a turbine? What is an air source heat pumps? Is it worth changing energy suppliers? What would happen if the power cut out during peak hours?

Bike Curious

Read Show Notes

Are we conditioned to think of travel as sexy? Are we still allowed to fly on holiday if we promise to cycle to work every day? Is being face to face with someone always worth the carbon? What is the solution for rural living? If your company flies an employee somewhere who's responsible for the carbon footprint? Can we reimagine how we connect with people across the world using technology? Why wont electric cars fix this problem? Have you tried an e-bike? My CliMates have so many questions about travel!

Seasonal Special

Read Show Notes

Imagine if we felt like we had enough? If we could be truly satisfied?

Is it OK to give someone your old T-shirt as a gift? Do we really need to wear deodorant? What do you mean the internet has a carbon cost? I thought it worked by magic! Have you ever seen one of these super-right-on ethical phones? Would a carbon cutting ice-bucket challenge type campaign work?

About the Podcast

CliMates
Chats about Climate Change
I set myself the challenge of having 100 conversations about Climate Change with my friends, my friends of friends, my family, their friends, their dogs (not really), folk I met on the bus (ok, again not really) and pretty much anyone who would talk about it with me (really!) I've edited the conversations together to share all the bestest bits with you. My favourite review so far is 'I felt stirred but hopeful' (my mum*****.) It's recommended to start at the beginning, theres an arc. (We might need one in the current state of affairs.)
I don't want to show off, but I've got one or two very cool potty mouthed pals (i.e. there's a couple of unbeeped sweary words. Just tame ones.)
