John Gibbons, climate journalist contributing to The Sunday Business Post and The Irish Times, and Kirsty Gogan talk to Eamon Dunphy about the outcomes of COP26. Kirsty is founder and managing partner of TerraPraxis, an advisor to Governments and NGOs on innovative ways to debarbonise, and chairs the UK Government’s Nuclear Innovation Research and Advisory Board (NIRAB) Cost Reduction Working Group. "The COP is half full rather than half empty because there was progress made. 1.5 [°C] is still on the table, but there's a heavy dose of realism that is needed here."
