While the news on climate change and species loss is gloomy (see links below) there is some light on the energy front:  last month we hit 76 hours without coal! What does this mean for consumers and policy makers? How much of our energy comes from wind, solar or nuclear?  What does the future of sustainable energy look like?  Find out the truth behind the stats – and hear our Planet Pod myth busts on green and not so green energy…..
