Episode 5 "The C Words; Covid and Climate" with special guests, Sir David King (Professor in Physical Chemistry/Climate Change) and Rick Parnell (CEO for the Foundation For Climate Restoration) Presented by: Intact Insurance Did climate change cause COVID? Is "lockdown life" the same as "net zero life"? Can we afford to fight climate change after what we’re spending on COVID?  This week on HOT TALK, we look at the ‘C Words’: COVID and Climate. Right from the start of the pandemic comparisons were made between COVID and climate change. Two international experts, Sir David King and Rick Parnell, wrote an article in the Washington Post which went beyond the basic headlines with an analysis that showed “STOPPING CLIMATE CHANGE COULD COST LESS THAN FIGHTING COVID 19" On this week's episode, we ask these two experts how COVID scooped climate’s headlines.
