When we go away the Amazon burns down, Boris Johnson becomes king, and London gets as hot as a farting hippo’s bottom. Sorry about that.

Now. Everyone’s saying we need to plant more trees everywhere, which would be fine if we stopped torching and chopping down the ones we had. Have we got any hope at all of planting (at least) half a billion more trees? Does it let Big Oil off the hook if we do? And is the world ready for Dave’s soggy willows? We investigate.

All this, and some proper cheeky abuse of the concept of ‘net zero’ by the fossil fuel lot. And the farming lot. And the aviation lot.
