Beautiful Brazil looks set to elect a git. He goes by the name of Jair Bolsonaro and he is bad news for rainforests and those that live in them. We ask our Brazilian chum Fernanda Balata whether her country has gone totally nuts.

Closer to home, we tear a strip off the Government’s Green Great Britain (and Northern Ireland) week. Shame about the fracking, eh.

And yet with one of the Big Six energy companies apparently ditching fossil fuels forever, we find to our surprise that our cynicism glands may be running dry.
