Mat Hope, the editor at DeSmogUK, a UK based climate/environmental news site producing some of the best investigative journalism surround Brexit and climate change in the UK. Mat and I chatted with his colleague Chloe Farand on the climate denial lobby and their pushing of a hard Brexit a few years back so it was a pleasure to have him back on the show. This time we talked about think tanks, Tufton street, how much they influence the government, as well as astroturfing, clickbait journalism, and the revolving door.
