A bumper edition today – Dale’s on the verge of announcing a huge new aviation project, while Ian’s new sofa prompts another of our biggest stories of the week. We’re looking at the good and the bad of EU environmental policy too. The Tories are tearing themselves apart when it comes to onshore wind power – so we take an in-depth look at the mess, …
 
Boris and Liz appear to be teaming up to bring back onshore wind - or is this just politics? We look at why they should stop infighting and bring onshore wind back. The energy price cap has gone up again - and we look at the reasons. We talk hemp too - turns out Dale knows a thing or two. There’s your questions too.…
 
Another week of U-turns, as the PM decides he’s going to the Coca Cola sponsored COP27 in Cairo - just days after saying he’s too busy with what’s happening at home. We discuss whether Rishi gets the climate emergency? Also, Europe is now warming at twice the global rate - what should we do. And, we’ve got your questions too - zerocarbonista@ecotri…
 
With so many policy u-turns, Dale is trying to get is head around what Rishi is giving, and what he’s taking away after news that fracking is banned again. And with record numbers of us ready to take direct action to project the planet, we delve into why modern policies feel so disconnected from reality, and why the government doesn’t appear to be …
 
The fall-out from the “mini” budget continues, so Dale wonders what the hell is going on? And with Truss and Rees Mogg falling out over solar power, is reality finally melting? We also talk about the new price-cap for renewable energy generators. And for those who keep asking about China - there’s a major new renewables initiative kicking off. We’r…
 
It’s been quite some week in the UK – but one line in the mini-not-budget made Dale very happy. Fracking is back in the news again, but we’re wondering how the government makes it happen if there’s actually ZERO public support for it, and a growing wealth of research and fact that suggests England is not the place to frack. Dale reports back on the…
 
We recorded this just after the UK government's mini budget. What the hell is going on? The lads attempt to digest the indigestible news. And don’t forget, fracking is back too. - even when Cuadrilla’s former boss says it won’t work in Britain. Your questions are answered too - including Ian’s energy price cap confusion. Mail us - zerocarbonista@ec…
 
It’s been quite a summer, new PM, new energy policy and plenty more. We talk about how Europe is handling the energy price crisis – and why a windfall tax is proving more popular on the continent. Also, find out what would happen if Dale was King. Your questions too – including updates on the hovercraft and campervan.…
 
We discuss the runners and riders for our new PM and feel a bit sad about it. Is it time for another election? With UK temperatures potentially breaking record highs, we wonder what more proof climate change deniers need? There’s an electric hovercraft update and loads of your questions too.Door Dale Vince
 
We start with news that offshore wind is going to push up the price of fish and chips - as UK government revs up to scrap important environmental law because of “red tape” - but continues to ignore recommendations to boost home insulation. We answer your questions too. Due to extreme exasperation there’s a fair amount of swearing this week.…
 
It's been two weeks since the last episode and Dale's been busy - find out about his adventures in Austria and in the Houses of Parliament. We look at some great changes in Australia - with a government that finally seems to get it. There's been a lot of chat about Green Gas - and there's an open invite for George Monbiot to come and talk about his…
 
Experts say there isn’t enough being done to improve energy efficiency - so naturally we find out what Dale thinks about it. Ian can’t believe what he’s hearing when Dale reveals he’s off to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger in Vienna, but he’ll be back. We talk about what the government could do (or not do) with the rising price of our energy bills. New …
 
It’s Jubilee Weekend in the UK - and Dale’s pondering what you need to do for your country to get recognised. We talk about our big green gas news - and why so many people seem to be in love with heat pumps. We also discover that tobacco isn’t just bad for people - it’s bad for the planet too. We answer your questions too, as Dale breaks out his st…
 
Big week for Dale and Ecotricity - there’s a new gas field in Britain, Dale explains more about why the grass under our feet is the answer to all of our heating related questions. Why haven’t government embraced it - and is this really something that could go mainstream? Our friends in Australia could be turning a corner when it comes to the climat…
 
Experts are wondering how many more signals of climate change the world needs to start acting, and so do we. We scratch our heads while world leaders continue to scratch their collective arse? And surprisingly, Dale appears to be siding with the energy watchdog for the first time in ages when it comes to proposed changes in the price cap system. Lo…
 
Our PM continues to limp on, and we’re wondering where it all goes from here, as it appears Dale and Boris are on the same side for once. We’re being advised to work from home to stop reliance on Russian oil – but why did it take a war to start breaking the reliance on fossil fuels? Dale talks about the reaction to flying the Palestine flag at Fore…
 
The government’s energy strategy is finally here - they want 8 new nuclear reactors and are considering fracking, so Dale and Ian wonder what the hell is going on? The IPCC says fossil fuel companies are blocking green and the policies - but the report is also written by those with interests in the market - bonkers. Dale answers your questions too.…
 
We discuss Dale’s plans to step away from Ecotricity - as he looks for a new owner. The guys talk in depth about his decision, and what Dale’s planning to do with all that spare time. Is he going to Barbados, or does he still have a huge list of stuff he wants to achieve? There’s also been a long rumoured political career - is that what’s next? Can…
 
Dale’s been reacting to the government’s move to zero vat on green stuff like solar panels in the spring budget, while learning you can’t swear on national radio. We wonder whether government ministers require training in the real world, after the Chancellor’s disastrous photoshoot. The energy crisis continues to rumble - so we examine what happens…
 
The energy crisis continues, while the North Sea oil operators have more cash than they know what to do with. Dale says he misses Donald Trump, and we wonder if he’s still got the Rona…. We also wonder what’s causing Brexiteers to turn into net zero sceptics. We answer a bumper mail bag of questions too.…
 
Terrible stuff going on in the world, but Dale’s wondering if the only positive from this conflict is the chance to finally push for energy independence - especially when you discover just 10% of our ‘economic recovery’ funds are being spent on green initiatives. The House of Lords says young people should pay for our net zero policy - and Dale doe…
 
We’re living through unpredictable, game changing times - so we investigate what energy independence will cost the UK, and why, if we don’t get much of our oil or gas from Russia, why are prices rocketing? In lighter news, Dale answers your questions about the solar powered camper van that’s going to take him to COP27.…
 
As storms batter the country, Dale and Ian get together to discuss the latest green stuff. A new report tells us that oil firms have been greenwashing for decades - and we wonder why the hell it took so long to tell us that. Dale reveals his new plan to travel to Egypt for COP27 in a solar panelled camper van and much more - including the US mega d…
 
Dale’s had a bit of a week. We get our teeth into the energy price cap and whether the government loan is really ‘helping’ customers. We also question whether the North Sea oil companies are struggling, or just struggling to count the cash. ITV broke Dale’s investigation into dogs being turned into electricity - we discuss a shocking story we just …
 
With a reporter writing “cotton is the new chicken” we're taking a look at why what we wear is increasingly important.

You’ll also hear Dale take Elon musk to task for polluting space with an errant rocket, on course to c…
 
We wonder how the holy hell the government can beat a legal challenge to stop developing the North Sea for oil and gas? We discuss the myth of carbon capture and storage on a mass scale - and talk about England’s Environment Agency, and how they appear to be selling the ability to pollute. And in the US, a fossil fuel company is using the first ame…
 
The shady World Economic Forum announced this week that climate change was the greatest threat in 2022, and we wonder what the hell took them so long? We chat about whether Ecotricity would use animal slurry in its green gas mills, and celebrate our friends at Tranmere Rovers for going vegan. Lots of questions from you lot too - including a questio…
 
The energy crisis continues rumbling and Dale’s got three things he wants the government to consider, so customers don't have to pay £hundreds more for their power from April. With Fossil Fuel companies paying for Google ads that look like normal search results - we wonder why tech companies aren’t regulated. We hear about the ultimate in greenwash…
 
This is our last one for 2021 - we look back at another bonkers year - but first Dale explains why he isn’t a fan of Christmas, and it’s not because he’s a big old grinch. We start with COP26 - the UK’s first attempt at hosting it and the behaviour of our Prime Minister. Then there’s the energy crisis, which has transformed our relationship with el…
 
We start looking at campaigners taking court action against governments for failing their climate targets - and whether this should these battles take place in court. There’s been a few cases of COVID at Forest Green Rovers, so we talk about what’s ahead for the rest of the season. Reindeers are starving in Lapland because of climate change - will …
 
Lots to discuss – three young people are suing the PM for failing to save the planet, and Dale says he fails to see any positives of privatisation, and reckons he would be happy for the energy industry to return under state control, if it solved the current crisis. We also look at a new poll that says Brits are now more concerned about the climate …
 
Following our week off, Dale discusses why COP was successful in his eyes – despite the meat-heavy, carbon-laden menu. We also discuss climate change education in schools, the Insulate Britain jailings, whether (or not) we need Andrew Neil back on our TV screens and Boris on a train. We’ve got loads of your questions too.…
 
Dale is in Glasgow for COP26, so we talk through some of the biggest news from the conference, including the “end of coal” - while the UK gets ready to open a new coal mine. We hear about Dale’s latest experience with the cops at COP26 and find out about eco-bot.net - cutting through the greenwash.Door Dale Vince
 
Dale and Ian digest the UK’s anti-climate budget - cheaper to fly, cheaper to drive and drink too, yet still nothing on home insulation or solar panels. We also work out Australia’s net zero plan - which seems to involve fossil fuels… As Dale gets ready for COP26, we wonder what’s ahead and whether the UK government is coordinating the world on cli…
