Climate Radio starts a new series of radio bulletins celebrating the emerging green shoots of our low carbon future.
Rather perversely, we start with an interview with environmental author Mark Lynas who embodies the positive and negative visions of our future. On the one hand, Mark's latest book "Six Degrees - Our future on a hotter planet" (out now published by Fourth Estate) looks into the dark heart of our possible future if we stay on our current high emitting course. He's done us a service by sitting in the library at Oxford University for three years making sense of all that material in the IPCC's second working group 1000 page report and other peer reviewed science papers. On the other hand, he's written a pocket guide to counting and cutting your carbon emissions. Mark tells us just how big his own carbon footprint is, how he's just had a second child and why being low carbon affords him a "supreme" quality of life. So is he optimistic or pessimistic about the future?
