In this episode we're trying to clean up the atmosphere with Carbon Capture and Storage - CCS.
Executive Chief Scientist at the National Environment Research Council's British Geological Survey, Mike Stephenson, explains that CCS is how we capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, turn it into liquid and pump it back into deep layers of porous rocks.
Professor Jon Gibbins, from the University of Sheffield, explains how this works in practice and the successful pilots which have proved its viability.
Lawyer and lecturer Navraj Singh Ghaleigh, from the University of Edinburgh, then discusses how the market for carbon capture and storage might work - and how well placed the UK is to lead the way.
