For millennia we have had a stable climate with atmospheric CO2 levels at around 280ppm. Since the Industrial Revolution, the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere has rocketed up to now around 420ppm with the consequent climate chaos we're now witnessing.Can we reverse that? Can we bring atmospheric CO2 levels back down to 280 once more? Today's guest on the podcast, Peter Fiekowsky thinks we can. He has written a book called Climate Restoration which details how to do this - quickly and cheaply (relatively!). To find out more I invited him to come on the podcast this. We had a fascinating conversation. I learned loads. I hope you do too.If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the Climate 21 Podcast Forum, or send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Energy efficiency isn't nearly as sexy a topic as building out some shiny new solar farm, but it is equally important, and when this energy efficiency benefits low income families who have traditionally been disproportionately effected by issues such as climate change, and pollution,  even better again.In this episode of the podcast I spoke to Ryan Cassidy. Ryan is the Director of Sustainability & Construction at RiseBoro Community Partnership in New York. We had a fascinating conversation discussing how Riseboro is making low income housing in New York City extremely energy efficient, how that benefits the health, as well as the financial wellbeing of the families living there, and how these benefits can be realised by other communities.This was an excellent episode of the podcast and I learned loads as always, and I hope you do too.If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the Climate 21 Podcast Forum, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Access to validated climate data sources is not trivial. What happens though if you want validated, regularly updated data that you can integrate with your systems?That is where Sust Global comes in. Sust Global uses credible, validated regularly, updated climate data sources, and provides integrations so organisations have access to this data in their systems to enable climate risk assessments down to individual asset level.To learn more I invited Sust Global co-founder and CEO Josh Gilbert (@JoshGilbertUK on Twitter) to come on the podcast.

Some of the lesser talked about emissions reductions solutions are efficiency based solutions. In this week's episode of the Climate 21 podcast I talk to Christopher Angelo, CEO of Glass Dyenamics, a company working in this space.Glass Dyenamics uses dynamic glass (glass that changes its transparency when a low electric current is applied to it), to prevent buildings being overly warmed by the sun, thus reducing the energy load required to cool it. We had a fascinating conversation discussing the genesis of Glass Dyenamics, how dynamic glass works, and how it compares to solar.This was an excellent episode of the podcast and I learned loads as always, and I hope you do too.If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the Climate 21 Podcast Forum, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Fugitive methane - what is it? And how can it be turned from a nasty climate emission into a source of energy, reduced emissions, and a way to reduce an organisation's costs, amongst other benefits?To answer these and more questions I invited Chris Mann, Co-Founder, and CTO of Bennamann to come on the podcast to tell us all about it.UPDATE: Chris emailed me to say the following - "Listening to it played back I realised that I had made an error when I gave an idea of the energy that could be generated from the methane captured from a small farm in a day.  I said that a daily capture of 100kg of methane equated to 15MWh of heat or provide about 7MWh of power and 0.8MWh of waste heat.  When I did the calculation in my head I was thinking of a ton to make the sums easier but I must have forgotten to divide back through. The correct answer is 1.5MWh of heat if burnt or about 0.7MWh of power and 0.8MW of waste heat in the latest FPT engines. Still not to be sniffed at especially at today’s prices and scarcity."This was an excellent episode of the podcast and I learned loads as always, and I hope you do too.If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the Climate 21 Podcast Forum, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

Investment is a hugely important part of the fight against climate change. But where should the money come from?What if the money we invest for our pensions, life insurance, savings were put towards fighting the climate crisis, while at the same time making a profit for us? Putting our money to work, for good. That is the thinking behind Carbon Collective - an investment house that invests your money solely in nonfossil fuel-based companies, and with the shares it purchases, becomes an activist investor to pressure companies to work towards reducing their emissions.keen to know more I invited Carbon Collective Co-Founder Zach Stein on the podcast to tell me all about it.This was an excellent episode of the podcast and I learned loads as always, and I hope you do too.If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the Climate 21 Podcast Forum, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

There is a new book on climate which has been recently released which I think is worth paying attention to. It is called Supercharge Me. Why do I think it is worth paying attention to? Because it takes a different tack to most other books. It proposes a manifesto of actions which if followed, should deliver net zero. what kind of actions? The ones that actually matter - policy and regulatory tweaks which can serve to change the incentives to act.I invited the authors of this book Corinne Sawers and Eric Lonergan to come on the podcast to tell me more.We had a fascinating conversation covering why they decided to write the book, the kinds of policy and regulatory tweaks that can make the biggest differences, and how to ensure these policy hacks are actually rolled out in the world.This was an excellent episode of the podcast and I learned loads as always, and I hope you do too.If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page, head on over to the Climate 21 Podcast Forum, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.
