@sustainactmove: @guardianeco #edandfranny Ed: Why did the UK not vote against World Bank funding for Eskom’s Medupi coal power station?

@peopleandplanet: Ed: What would you do to ensure RBS lends money to companies reducing emissions rather than increasing them eg.tar sands firms? #edandfranny

@ali_mfoe: Q: Economic system based on continuous growth clearly doomed to failure on finite planet. What’s your vision of an alternative? #edandfranny

@JS350: #EdAndFranny Finally, how about leading unilaterally through an evidence based policy of limiting the use of our reserves to 60%?
