Wow hadn't seen this when I wrote my piece yesterday. This presenter is today arguing that listening to scientists' heat warnings "serves large corporate interests"... whose interests does ignoring climate change serve again??

Part of the British rightwing, which may hold great influence over our next PM, is trying to start a U.S.-style culture war over climate change. We know how that ends.

Algae-based bricks, by @losethecarbon and @SOM_Design , go on sale next year. They could make it a lot easier to build buildings without destroying the climate

My friend and colleague ⁦ @domphillips ⁩ has disappeared while reporting in the Brazilian Amazon with a leading indigenous expert Bruno Pereira, just days after receiving threats. Extraordinarily worrying. Please share as widely as possible.
