Sustainababble 3 then, and steam our underparts if it isn’t a cracker.

Dave and Ollie get reflective about the extent to which it’s OK for people – in particular Americans – to treat scientific fact as an article of faith. While ‘belief’ in climate change is on the rise in the UK, what excuses can be found for fully half of the American public to think it’s a wicked fantasy?

They get their teeth into ‘natural capital’ – whatever the hell that means. And revel in the rise and rise of solar, which makes the Chancellor’s underhand love-in with the frackers all the more galling.

All this, and time to see how Ollie’s prediction of a telling off for Cuadrilla went.

Sustainababble is a weekly podcast for and by greeny types who don’t really know what’s going on. It comes out every Monday.

Music by Dicky Moore from Bearcraft.
