Everybody is talking about energy. The cost, availability, sources – all against the background of the upcoming UN COP26 Climate Change conference in Glasgow.

This episode features the views of celebrated US scientist Dr Lawrence Rocks who wrote The Energy Crisis in 1973 and who was closely involved in the establishment of the US Department of Energy under President Jimmy Carter.

Dr Rocks talks about the impact of farming and food production on climate changes and says that a weather station on the moon would help provide valuable data to scientists and environmentalists.

The interview is an edited version from the Mooch FM podcast series hosted by President Trump’s former Director of Communications, Anthony Scaramucci, who has kindly given me permission to use extracts.

My other guests are Charlie Nicklin and Paul Hemingway, CEO and President of the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAGRE) who preview the very timely 2021 IAgrE Conference on the theme of Future Fuels in Agriculture to be held online over Zoom on 3 November.
