News Roundtable: The Race Against Climate Change – Will Animal Activism Solve the Climate Crisis?
In this week's 'News Roundtable' episode, host Chris Wright is joined by Animal Rising activist Claudia Penna Rojas, Professor of European Politics John O’Brennan, Conservative columnist and commentator Samantha Smith, and Labour Councillor Freddie Bailey.
The conversation starts with John O’Brennan assessing Joe Biden’s personal and political visit to Northern Ireland, widening into a review of transatlantic relations. We swiftly move on to the issue of Labour’s controversial advert about Rishi Sunak’s views on child sexual abusers. Does this mark a new unpleasant series of political exchanges in the lead-up to the general election?
The panel discusses the junior doctor’s strikes and then debates animal rights at the Grand National. Activist Claudia Penna Rojas reveals how Animal Rising plans to protest at the event. This opens up a broader debate about our relationship with animals, climate change, and the impact of animal agriculture. Host Chris Wright poses a strong challenge to Animal Rising’s plans and their effectiveness. Claudia presents a vision that stresses the urgency of global warming and how our relationship with animals needs to change - but is it realistic?
