Friday, September 16th, 2022: This week in the sustainability news cycle…

We ask ourselves, is Charles set to become our new climate King? With the monarchy dominating the news headlines in the wake of Queen Elizabeths death, we turn our eyes to the newest head of state and reflect back on his illustrious and potentially surprising sustainability past. 

It's official, our girl La Niña is here to stay for a little while longer but that's not the biggest news to come out of the biodiversity game this week as google searches for the 'doomsday glacier' skyrocket.

And it wouldn't be a sustainability podcast if we didn't talk about the Kardashians at least one right? (ha) We recap the latest drama to come out of the realty royalty camp and chat about the latest update to hit google maps in Europe.
