You seriously couldn’t find one woman, ? Not one? I AM SO TIRED OF WOMEN SCIENTISTS BEING ACTIVELY EXCLUDED FROM TELEVISION. We are smart. We’re funny. We’re good communicators. We’re really loud about it! We make lists! We did all the work for yo

The planned expansion of the UK's airports is not compatible with its climate targets. You probably sensed that already, but here's some hard numbers...

If you think every generation has its own “coming of age,” “character building” crisis and that’s what climate change is for millennials and younger...go fuck yourself.

Heartfelt blog from clean transport researcher grappling with his large work emissions flying to conferences on transport emissions "There’s no denying that flying is the most environmentally damaging thing I do in any given year."

Next London climate drink gathering coming up on Tuesday 25th. This is not a panel or talk event, it really is just us chatting in a pub like everyone else there but with an added climate element :)

When female climate activists interrupted BP’s AGM last month, they were allowed to have their say. Security guards (obv professionally trained) created a barrier between them and senior execs. Then they were walked out. No one was dragged out by their necks.

Good to see a long overdue and serious discussion on taxing kerosene on intra-EU flights. In the UK, this should be in addition to, and not replace, Air Passenger Duty (which was never designed to be an environmental tax)

Of the 17 books on this best nature books of 2019 list, 12 are by white men, the rest by white women. If you're in the business of making lists like this (or ordering books for a bookstore), you need to do better.

Last time the scientifically illiterate were influential, weren’t cheap, Tory voters weren’t backing action in polls, & huskies were still above water. or will face a GE at some point. The GWPF are, literally, toxic.

Dr Eckhard Pache, prof. of law , addressed this. He said in principle there's no conflict w/ Chicago convention or other intl law. Problem lies in tax exemption clauses of some bilateral aviation services agreements. But these specific situations could just be excluded

Ugh this is so annoying. I remember when Airbnb was first about and it seemed great, all about sharing your spare room for a bit of cash or letting your house when you go away for the weekend. What a sad cautionary tale it's turned out to be

That could be true. But in any case: a) Non-CO2 emissions from aviation at least double climate impact b) How many people across the world use the internet regularly vs the number who fly regularly? c) Electricity is far easier to decarbonise than jet fuel

11/end Oh and by the by please don't forget or neglect to keep mentioning that overall climate impacts of aviation are thought to be at least double those of CO2 alone, due to the non-CO2 impacts! This is crazy & scary

10/n As Bill Hemmings from said, it is difficult to understand why a business class air ticket from Europe to the US should be VAT free. (BTW, business & first class tickets are far more carbon intensive than economy). Exciting finally see some policy action on this

9/n An aviation tax could raise 10s of billions of euros, Prof Dr Jon Strand from the World Bank said this morning. At least part of this could be use for climate purposes, such as investment in trains which are far lower carbon and can be electrified.

8/n And then there is , the UN aviation agency scheme to offset any growth in aviation emissions from 2021. But there are lots of criticisms of this scheme and its ability to cut emissions. I detailed many here: .
