"Trees aren't good long term carbon stores" plants, peat-lands and biodiversity with Joshua Styles
As wildfires ravage the U.S west coast it has never been more pertinent to think about what rising global temperatures are doing to our natural environments. The wild fires in Australia at the beginning of this year killed nearly 3 billion animals, our choices and the choices of our leaders and governments affect the world around us all. If we are to tackle the climate crisis how do we defend and reinvigorate the natural world? Are we putting too much emphasis on counting carbon instead of the costs on the natural world itself?
This week we are joined by Joshua Styles (@joshual951), from the North West Rare Plants Initiative (NWRPI). We discuss the current state of flora & fauna protections in the UK, how the slashing of planning regulation is endangering some of our rarest wild life and is planting trees the best solution to our carbon problem?
