The Climate Election? | Germany Elects

In this final episode of Germany Elects before polling day (Sunday 26 September) we discuss how the election actually works and whether this has been Germany's first "climate election".

Host Jeremy Cliffe is joined by World Review's Emily Tamkin to explain the electoral system, the results and possible coalitions, and takes a quick-fire round of You Ask Us listener questions.

Then he is joined by Sven Egenter, Editor-in-Chief of Clean Energy Wire and Philippa Nuttall, the New Statesman’s Environment and Sustainability Editor, to discuss Germany's climate policies, how the party manifestos shape up and how the climate crisis has marked the campaign.
