This week on The Sound Kitchen, you’ll hear the answer to the question about the world’s five highest CO2 emitting countries.There’s great music, listener letters, and of course, the new quiz question. So click on that little “Listen” arrow above, and join in!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to The Sound Kitchen. You can catch the programme on-the-air every Saturday, at 4:52, 6:22, and 7:52 universal time. You’ll hear the winner’s names announced and the week’s quiz question, along with all the other ingredients you have grown accustomed to: your letters and essays, “On This Day”, quirky facts and news, interviews, and great music … so be sure and tune in every Saturday.

This week’s quiz: On 20 December, I asked you a question about climate change. A “name and shame” agreement - an agreement which relies largely on global peer pressure – had just been signed by almost 200 nations, at an international summit in Peru. Every nation that signed on agreed to enact domestic laws to reduce carbon emissions, and to put forth a plan which details how much their country will cut fossil fuel emissions after 2020, and how. The plans are to be ready by 31 March. There are no legally binding requirements that countries cut their emissions by any particular amount. It is the first time that all nations   rich and poor   have agreed to cut back on burning oil, gas and coal.

My question to you was: which are the five most polluting countries? You were to send in the names of the largest producers of CO2 emissions worldwide in 2014.

The answer is: China, the U-S, India, the Russian Federation, and Brazil.

The winners this week are: Rajib Kumar Mondal – he’s a member of the RFI Listeners Club, and of the Shawon DX Corner Club, in Natore, Bangladesh; Zenon Teles, of the Christian – Marxist – Leninist - Maoist Association of Listening DX-ers in Goa, India, and an RFI Listeners Club member; Anwar Muhammad from Keralam State, India; Jahangir Alam Manto, the president of the Kaptai RFI Fan Club in Kaptai, Bangladesh, and Sherena Michie from Charlottesville, Virginia.

Congratulations, winners !
