Having Children In A Climate Crisis, Eco Fascism and Fossil Fuels with Tessa Khan

Season finale! Tessa Khan is an international climate change and human rights lawyer, campaigner and strategist. She is the founder and executive director of climate action organisation Uplift who are on a mission to support and energise the movement for a just and fossil fuel-free UK. Tessa spent more than fifteen years supporting grassroots, regional and international movements for justice and has served as an expert advisor to UN human rights bodies and national governments around the world.

In this episode, we’re going to be speaking about fossil fuels and climate breakdown and what it means for ours and our children's future. We'll also be touching on eco fascism, the overpopulation myth, climate tipping points, the future of democracy, the energy crisis and Big Oil's recent profits.

Tessa is my first return guest to this podcast. Listen to our first conversation on the fight for a fossil fuel free future.

Since we last spoke, Tessa recorded an unmissable TED talk titled: "How Can We Escape Soaring Energy Bills? Stop Using Fossil Fuels"
