Episode notes

Hello! We got out of Geoff's loft and onto Parliament Square to join the many thousands of young people worldwide protesting about climate change and we also talk about what could be a big part of the answer: A Green New Deal (GND). We explain what it is and how it seeks to put economic and social justice at the heart of the fight against climate change with Ann Pettifor, one of the originators of the idea more than ten years ago and Zack Exley, US Co-Founder of Justice Democrats that supported Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has put the GND on the map in the US,  AND Comedian Olga Koch is rebranding cooperation tax, applying the impartiality of football referees to combat fake news and incentivising voting with prizes.
