Tom: [00:00:12] Hello and welcome to Outrage and Optimism. I'm Tom Rivett-Carnac,


Christiana: [00:00:16] I'm Christiana Figueres,


Paul: [00:00:17] And I'm Paul Dickinson.


Tom: [00:00:18] So we are back. Season four. We're thrilled to be back. We've been off the air for a couple of months, but we're back with new energy, new excitement and new ideas that we can't wait to share with you. Today it is just the three of us. We don't have a guest. We are going to talk about what has happened over the course of this summer, where we are now and how the world is fundamentally changing in its response to the climate crisis and what needs to be done in the crucial few months through to COP26. Thanks for being here.
