Hi. Well done. Good on you!

Do you feel as though the coronavirus pandemic will further or hinder the fight against global warming?

a bit of both, we had to do the global strike online in April, which is ashame. however it has given us a fresh start to go forward with a green recovery! such as new jobs in the renewable energy sectors, and pushing things like cycling and electric cars etc

How do you square the use of electric vehicles, which by definition require heavy industry and environmentally damaging extractive technology (lithium mines not exactly being known as clean), with the so called green ethos?

Ah okay. Next question, do you believe theres actually a chance the planet would become 'net zero' given many developing countries have better things to put their efforts towards? i.e. industrialising rapidly

personal I believe that is is possible, but not straight away. firstly all developed countries need to become net zero then the developing ones as if the UK for an example has managed to achieve it they should have the tools to help the other countries become net zero.
