ECO CHAMBER PODCAST: Ecocide, super quangos and Top of the Poops 2

Listen as the ENDS Report team examines why some Environment Agency officers can no longer afford to work at the agency, whether the government's energy security strategy is up to scratch, what the future holds for England's regulators, which councils have the most sewage dumped into them, whether moves to create a new law of Ecocide are gaining traction, and why you can no longer trust your own carpet

Every fortnight, the ENDS team runs down the biggest green news stories, shines a spotlight on some pretty nasty chemicals, and takes a forensic look at one of the more deep-rooted environmental issues facing us today.

In this tenth episode, the team explores:

  • Why staff are leaving the Environment Agency in droves
  • Why DEFRA's being so coy about showing the workings behind its green goals
  • Whether the government's energy security strategy passes muster
  • Which council is suffering from the most sewage pollution
  • How Ecocide could become an international crime
  • And what's lurking in the carpet beneath your feet
