  • On the matter of CCS, mentioned at around 5 mins into the podcast, may I propose that any peoples interested look into the work of Allan Savory:
    I mention this because there are claims in this field that such efforts of 'holistic grazing' potentially outweigh the impact of the use of fossil fuels, hence CCS becomes a comparative waste of resources (time, money, manpower). Granted, and I anticipate, those patriots amongst 'The Engineer' readers will not appreciate focus on efforts well outside the UK, but I have the benefit of the world in mind, and contests between countries bores me.
