Chatter Episode 47 – Mat Hope and Chloe Farand on the Climate Denial Lobby and a Hard Brexit

Mat and Chloe Farand from DeSmog Uk were our guests on today’s show. They have been doing some incredible reporting on the links between the US climate denial lobby and the web of pro-Brexit think tanks like the IEA and the Tax Payers Alliance. We had a really interesting chat about the reporting they have been doing, the implications of these think tanks holding influence with the UK government, as well as the political and economic issue of dealing with climate change.
