Feeling uneasy about the climate emergency?
What is eco anxiety?
From fires in Australia to floods in Indonesia, it's no wonder many of us are feeling more than a little on edge about the environment.
In episode 5 of our podcast "How to Save the Planet", we talk to a journalist and a psychotherapist about the meaning of eco anxiety and why feelings of despair may actually be a good thing. For you, and for the planet.
Victory on fracking
After 8 years of campaigning by local groups and NGOs, the government has announced a moratorium on fracking.
This is a huge victory for the climate, and shows what can be achieved when communities join together for a common goal.
Of course Friends of the Earth always has, and always will, call for a full fracking ban and for the government to stop supporting fracking overseas, but now is a great moment to celebrate community action and what we have achieved.
