This week, Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal, Jayashree Arunachalam and Anand Vardhan are joined by Joydeep Gupta, the south Asia director at Third Pole, and Emanuela Barbiroglio, the European climate and energy correspondent for Carbon Pulse

The discussion begins with controversies surrounding the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar, before moving to the Supreme Court hearing over petitions seeking reforms in the appointment of election commissioners.

The panel subsequently discusses the details of the Cop27 meetings in Egypt, and whether it is too late for concrete action on climate change. “I don’t support the attitude that it is too late so we shouldn’t do anything about it,” says Emanuela. “Yes it is too late. We are behind on taking measures regarding Cop27, but it is never too late to do anything about it,” adds Joydeep.
