Then, Ethiopia’s prime minister this week appointed women to half of its cabinet, saying the decision was because females are "less corrupt" than men. But how much does gender really have to do with corruption? Afterwards, the international panel on climate change has warned we have just 12 years to limit our emissions or the environment will tip into disaster. We hear from one man who, after putting solar panels on his house 15 years ago, has made big changes to how his family thinks about energy consumption.
