For this week’s environmental issue, timed to coincide with the report by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we appointed a guest editor: Richard Black, a former BBC environment correspondent, and director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit.

With his help, we have assembled an impressive group of commentators to reflect on the threat to the planet posed by global warming. Among them are Christiana Figueres, who was the head of the UN’s climate body at the time of the Paris Agreement, Emily Shuckburgh, a climate scientist specialising in the Arctic, Nick Holtam, the C of E’s lead bishop on the environment, and Loretta Minghella, the First Church Estates Commissioner.

Paul Handley and Madeleine Davies spoke to Richard Black about the challenge of climate change.
