Does it really matter how ‘fair’ the solutions to climate breakdown are? So long as we stop the worst of it, who cares whether a few people have their noses put out of joint, right?

Or is that missing the point, as well as being a bit inhofe-y? Is it *only* possible to achieve the radical changes needed if those changes don’t, for instance, make the poor poorer?

The rather splended Environmental Justice Commission has been talking to people throughout the UK about all this and more, and its boss, Luke Murphy, joins us to chew it over.
