This week we had a good old fashioned panel discussion with Jaime, John, Chris & Ahmed about environmental issues in the recent news. We realised that there is way too much to cover in one show but we tried our best to canvas a few trending topics. The items we discussed were mainly based on recent news articles which are listed below. As you would expect, the conversation occasionally drifts on tangents so make sure you listen to the show to hear all the wisdom of Jaime and all the random facts, figures and info that John manages to retain in his brain.
