Quick Climate Links: Climate 200 explained by Simon Holmes à Court at National Press Club

Simon Holmes à Court (pictured) took the message about Climate 200 to the National Press Club and although there was some hostility in the room, the founder of Climate 200 handled himself with aplomb - you can watch the presentation and make your own judgement.

A major two-day virtual conference considering transportation has just concluded and the recordings from that event can be found at the World Resources Institute website.

The Climate One podcast tells us about the "Enablers: Behind the Fossil Fuels Falsehoods".
