Baroness Jolly

Mistakes can happen in any organisation. Both intentionally and unintentionally, bias or prejudice can creep in and blinkers can prevent the truth from being seen as it really is. Even if no mistakes were made, without external scrutiny many will not believe that to be the case. This means that errors or corruption cannot be addressed and that honest officers cannot be validated.

The result; a morale damaging report on the police use of force.

Fracking is the sensible middle ground between preserving the environment and satisfying our energy needs.

Overall the discussion has to move from defensive discussions of nations asking 'how little I can offer and still make it look like a deal' towards 'how can we work together to form a deal which will deliver a low-carbon future for the world which keeps us all safe'.

The negotiators now preparing to head to Lima for COP20 and then to Paris a year later may well be poring over the pages of data and dozens of graphs in the 5th Assessment Report, but the message is nevertheless a simple one, although requiring some bold steps.

Tim Lindsay

It's these kinds of challenges that the creative industries have thrived upon for decades: when resource is low and the need for creativity is high. But with less time for old-fashioned R&D, many feel under pressure and don't want to upset the status quo where sustainability isn't currently part of the conversation.

Choices made in the next few years will affect the risks of climate change. If conservatives are right, and adapting to climate change is a better strategy than mitigating it, this has to start with adapting our economies - the source of unsustainable environmental change.
