Party & Geoengineering

A couple of quick recommendations. You’ve only got a day left to listen to part 1 of Party, adapted by Tom Basden from his own play which has only just finished a run in the West End following its debut in last year’s Edinburgh Festival.
A group of middle class – and not especially bright – people meet to form a new political party, firm up some of their ideals and even come up with a name.
It’s a fantastic listen and laugh out loud funny.
Less amusing is Geoengineering the Climate. This programme looked at the various methods that are being proposed to engineer our way out of climate change. These involve such ideas as dumping vast quantities of elements such as iron in the ocean to filling the skies with sulphur to block sunlight. A fascinating subject that is not the science fiction that it perhaps sounds.
