This week on Taking Stock with Mandy Johnston: It's not easy being green. As the banks' green pledges came under scrutiny at COP26 -  Mandy hears from the Financial Times -  about where the buck will stop for putting the planet before profit. But to start off - Mandy was joined on Taking Stock from Glasgow by Gillian Tett from the Financial Times. Gillian is Chair of the FT Editorial Board and Editor-at-large in the US.  Australia is on track to meet its 2030 Paris target because of significant Government investment in renewable energy. They have driven down their carbon emissions by almost 20% since 2005, so, what can we learn from them? The Australian Ambassador to Ireland Gary Gray explains how our two countries are collaborating on climate action. And finally, Bored, Lonely, Angry, Stupid. We'll hear how our feelings and our emotions have been twisted by technology ever since it was invented -  right through from the Telegraph to Twitter. Mandy chats with Luke Fernandez and Susan J. Matt on the perils of our newly embraced technologies and why they wrote a book  on the subject.
