Now then, we have Some News about the babble. Listen to the show to find out precisely what (don’t worry, we haven’t been bad), but suffice to say this year’s Sustainabauble will be particularly valedictory.

But before we get too festive and emotional, there’s work to be done. Like trying to gather our thoughts on there being 8 billion humans alive.

Or indeed what we make of the increasingly ballsy climate protests sweeping the land. Are Just Stop Oil really “damaging their cause“, as so many armchair critics would have us believe?

And finally whether COP 27 (itself not finalised at the time of recording, we should add) is doing anything meaningfully better than the previous two dozen and two.

Busy boys, we are. At least for the next four weeks. Sniff.

Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly. Theme music by the legendary Dicky Moore – @dickymoo. Sustainababble logo by the splendid Arthur Stovell at Design by Mondial. Ecoguff read out by Arabella.
