Speaking about the project, he explained: “It’s a real passion project. I have been working in climate and Rural Affairs broadcasting for the last 20 years since 2000.
“I was in journalism before that, but I started specialising in this area.
“Increasingly, in the last few years, I felt that we were covering the undoubted problem, the urgency and importance of climate change pretty well.
“But what we’re not talking about are the solutions out there, the narrative of what is being done and what needs to be done.”
