We are sticking with the theme of climate change from two weeks ago, but turning our attention to a potential solution for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and it just so happens that this may also help rebuild the health of our soils. I speak with Professor David Beerling from the department of animal and plant science from the University of Sheffield about the use of basalt in agricultural production.

After our fascinating discussion last week with Dr Jason Goldman about sea otter reintroductions to the west coast of Canada, we are shifting from the marine environment to the terrestrial one, and from fauna to flora, and possibly the greatest threat and challenge of our time: climate change. Are trees always the answer for carbon sequestration? Dr Nina Friggins walks us through a new study which answers this question.

We are escaping today, in our minds at least, to the coast of British Columbia, to the archipelago of Haida Gwaii. I pick up a story with Dr Jason Goldman, looking at the re-introduction of expatriated wild sea-otters, and the implications of their return on local communities and the eco-system.
