To better report on the climate crisis, the M&G has joined up with 250 other newsrooms for the @CoveringClimate project.

This is appalling behaviour by @SouthernRailUK staff towards a homeless man. The woman who posted this on Facebook said that just before she started filming the staff had whacked him with a mop. They then started harassing her for filming what they were doing.
I don't have kids, but if I did I imagine that the sense of outrage and urgency I feel regarding climate breakdown would be magnified considerably.
