In the June 2021 issue of Geographical, and with the G7 summit fast approaching in Cornwall, our geopolitical columnist Tim Marshall takes a closer look at the institution, asking whether it has the power and potential to really solve the world’s big problems. We explore the intriguing world of bioremediation (using natural materials such as plants and fungi to clean up toxic waste) and question why it isn’t widespread. And, we take a tour with the US Coast Guard in Alaska, where global warming is making the job ever more dangerous. Plus, the return of the elm to British woodland and an important question: what standards should we hold modern day explorers to in the light of the climate crisis?
