Could the North Sea become a green energy hub?

From the BBC World Service: With a desperate need to stop relying on Russian energy, there are plans to make the North Sea ‘Europe’s biggest green power plant’. We speak with Maurice Berns, head of the Boston Consulting Group Center for Energy Impact, about the idea. Plus, Brazil will continue to farm according to its own regulations, despite European Union laws banning the import of products linked to deforestation. And, rising sugar and cocoa prices are bringing a sour note to the confectionery industry.
