Lord Deben is sprightly and personable. At 80 he is full of vigour and enthusiasm, confident even, that his dream of a cleaner future is within reach.

In a wide-ranging interview, he tells me the net zero target by 2050 is not pie in the sky but a reasonable aim that we as a society, can achieve but not without hardship.
