54. Seize the Moment with Teresa Ribera and Thomas Thune Andersen

A landmark draft law brought forward in Spain would ban all new coal, gas, and oil projects and bring Spain's carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050. Why is right now, in the middle of a health crisis, the right moment for this? We speak to Spanish Vice President and Minister of The Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, and get her courageous reasons. So if oil and gas are being phased out, how do energy companies make the switch? We speak with current Chair of renewable energy company Ørsted, Thomas Thune Andersen. Ørsted was recently named "Most Sustainable Company In The World" after transitioning from extracting fossil fuels to a company that harnesses 30% of all global wind energy.
