Paul is a barrister and founder of Lawyers in Nature who aim to provide representation, campaigning and legal resources on environmental protection and rights for nature., particularly in a corporate setting.
We talk about this (voluntary) work and why he does it. We chat sh*t and Thames Water and how it brings home the reality of our climate and environmental crisis.
We discuss human rights vs. nature's rights and how they would be balanced in society's best interests. We also find out what it's like to be interviewed by Nigel Farage on something called GB News.
