This week, Craig talks to Alastair McIntosh, ecologist, activist, and author of a new paper on community rights in the face of carbon capture and capital, The Cheviot, The Stag and the Black, Black Carbon. They discuss the rise of the Green Lairds, the lack of community agency embedded in current land reform strategy and how there are some early signs of better approaches towards land reform starting to emerge.
