What *is* clear is that the planet continues to be imperilled and fixing it should be top of everyone's agenda, but isn't, largely because of all the uncertainty.WHAT ON EARTH'S GOING TO HAPPEN? We speculate, wildly.Also this week, XR get it a bit wrong, top babble from the aviation industry and Shell being, well, shell-ish.Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.
