In this episode:

  • Welcome and intro to our Season 2 recap. [0:0]
  • A reminder on carbon budgets [2:19]
    • MCR has burnt through 40% of its carbon budget, which is likely to be gone by 2027 at the latest.
  • MCC is going to build a solar farm! Or is it? [8:28]
  • What’s going on with that Clean Air Zone and how does Manchester compare to other UK cities? [18:05]
  • Local election 2023 review – “a green spread? Sounds like some fairly rank butter”. Neighbourhoods content is back in with climate change at scrutiny. All in good faith or is this a reversal of the Climate Emergency Manchester win in 2021? [32:23]
  • Outro – Season 2 will look at MCC scrutiny items as well as important issues for us, our listeners and hopefully some guests. If you have suggestions for either, email podcast@climateemergencymanchester.net [47:46]
