Shell sued, wood-burning worries, and DEFRA's dirty data

Listen as the ENDS Report team examines how wood-burners have contributed to breached air quality limits, the government's decision to tweak its data on reporting ammonia emissions, and the 'encouraging' uptake of ELMs adopted by farmers

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

In this 31st episode, the team explores:

  • how harmful PM2.5 levels are on the rise due to a proliferation of wood-burners
  • why the government has tweaked its own data on air quality and ammonia emissions
  • the good news that more farmers are signing up to DEFRA's subsidy scheme ELMs
  • why Shell's directors are being sued over their climate acumen
  • and regulators in Europe taking action to attempt a blanket ban on toxic Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)
