Richard Macrory on Brexit's environmental impact

Sep 27, 2017, 11:02 PM

We talk about Brexit as a generation-defining issue, but when it comes to urgency and the scope of possible consequences, climate change takes the cake.

We talked to Richard Macrory, the UK's first professor of environmental law and co-chair of the UK Environmental Law Association Brexit Task Force about how the country's environmental regulations might be impacted post-Brexit - for better or for worse.

We also discuss how people interact with climate change, whether they are able to grasp its scope, what practical contributions can be made and how we shouldn't get discouraged by a lack of immediate results.
