As environmentalists celebrate, we ask how much the decision has to do with cheaper oil. Anna Jones from the campaign group Greenpeace and Per Magnus Nysveen from Rystad Energy in Oslo give us their views. Also in the programme, economic commentator Roger Bootle assesses how seriously the 'Made in Germany' brand has been damaged by the scandal of emissions test rigging at Volkswagen. Plus we have highlights from a special debate on business and climate change. The BBC's Simon Jack talks to serial entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, Unilever Chief Executive Paul Polman and the Sudanese telecoms billionaire, Mo Ibrahim. And Lucy Kellaway assesses the merits, or otherwise, of corporate mission statements.
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
