"There can be no socialism on a dead planet" Catching up with Councillor Jon Burke.
**Apologies for some of the audio issues, Andrew had a night off**
As the nights draw in and the GND team snuggle up in our cozy, retrofitted, zero carbon house of the future (powered entirely by the hot air supplied by Andrew) it's time for a catch up with the low traffic neighbourhood Santa Claus himself, Councillor Jon Burke of Hackney.
This week we discuss the on going campaign to make Hackneys streets for people not just cars, the climate impacts of catering the world to cars and we debunk myths about low traffic neighbourhoods.
