Nick Bainton on 3CR radio talking about just transition

Nick Bainton joined Judith Peppard of 3CR radio’s Communication Mixdown to discuss the concept of a just transition to renewable energy and the difficulties of achieving it.  You can listened to their conversation from 15:52 here:

‘What we are trying to draw attention to is the question of the distribution of benefits and burdens of the global energy transition. Who bears the cost of our – the Global North’s – energy transition and is it going to be evenly distributed? Or are we going to see the global energy transition entrench on already existing forms of inequality and human rights impacts and abuses that are already playing up as a result of extractive industries?’
