Podcast: Ending Fossil Fuels Subsidies - the politics of saving the planet
In this episode of the IDS Between the Lines podcast, IDS Fellow Lars Otto Naess interviews Dr Neil McCulloch (Director, The Policy Practice) about his new book: Ending Fossil Fuel Subsidies: The politics of saving the planet.
In the podcast, Neil argues that fossil fuel subsidies are killing both people and the planet, because they encourage the excessive consumption of fossil fuels – which exacerbates pollution and climate change and wastes huge sums that could be used far better.
Neil lays out a new agenda for action on fossil fuel subsidies, showing how a better understanding of the underlying political incentives can lead to more effective approaches to tackling this major global problem.
