Description

Extinction Rebellion has once again taken to the streets demanding the UK government take urgent action in the climate emergency.

The campaign group are renowned for their disruptive and controversial tactics that cause chaos up and down the country - but does their civil disobedience have an impact on the policy and action that could solve climate change?

On this week's Sky News ClimateCast Anna Jones examines the impact of Extinction Rebellion with environmentalist and campaigner Jonathon Porritt. We also hear from member of the House of Lords, Julia King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge to discuss how activists can lobby policymakers

Plus our climate change correspondent Hannah Thomas-Peter joins us from the centre of a protest in Central London.
