Someone needs to tell the UN to stop writing reports on the state of the planet. Their latest lolzfest, hot on the heels of 2018’s IPCC report (aka ‘Seriously, climate change is awks’), says humans are threatening A MILLION species with extinction. Tally ho!

Fear not though, even in this bleakest of topics, babble was saught and – by jove – babble was found.

Also this week, encourging news on the do-people-give-a-shit barometer, as a recording of birdsong soars up the UK charts and Australian voters give politicians a planet flavoured kick in the Uluru.

Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly. Theme music by the legendary Dicky Moore – @dickymoo. Sustainababble logo by the splendid Arthur Stovell. Eco-guff performed by Arabella.
