Climate change mitigation rightly gets a lot of attention and funding as we fight to make as much change as possible in the next 10 years. But already we have seen the early impacts of climate change: flooding, forest fires and droughts. What can we do to prepare for a new world and protect human life? We discuss what's needed.

The climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis are inextricably linked. Without nature, we can't survive - no matter how much carbon we suck from the sky. But what is the interface between climate and biodiversity?
And how can we put a monetary value on biodiversity to incentivise action? And should we? We discuss.

The pursuit of infinite growth has come at a cost. So can we replace GDP with a better metric? Is the solution to the climate crisis shrinking economies? And if degrowth is the answer to restoring the earth, how do we reduce production while improving living standards?
Miriam Olsson Jeffery interviews degrowth researcher at Lund University (Sweden).
