Quick Climate Links: Climate Code Red: Climate Rescue Project; La Niña declared

Quick Climate Links: Climate Code Red: Climate Rescue Project; La Niña declared

Quick Climate Links was meant to be a thing of the past by now as the plan was to keep it alive during COP26 in Glasgow, but stories about the climate continue to populate the media, in all its forms, and so it seems appropriate to keep it alive for the moment.

Setting up an interview with one of the co-authors of Climate Code Red, Philip Sutton, and discuss his new project, "Climate Rescue", was an interesting moment as it almost became "the interview" and those few seconds are included in this episode.
