    Too hot to handle - but we must get a grip

    Too hot to handle - but we must get a grip

    Cooling down our climate is no easy feat, but it's a necessary one for the billions of people who face ever more frequent and furious heatwaves due to climate change.

    It's estimated that by 2050, the energy demand from air conditioners will triple, and an air conditioning unit will be sold every single second.

    But a higher demand for AC equals a higher production of greenhouse gases - causing even more heatwaves. So how do we break the vicious cycle and find a happy medium?

    On this episode of Sky News ClimateCast, hosts Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi come armed with their fans, summer clothes and sweat bands as they explore how we can adapt to a warming climate.

    They speak to science correspondent Thomas Moore about the dangers of extreme heat as well as a Canadian resident from the town of Lytonn, whose entire village was destroyed by wildfire.

    Plus Dr. Radikha Khosla –a researcher working on cooling solutions, answers the question on all of our minds: how can we cool down, as the planet heats up?

    Hosts: Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi
    Guests: Edith Loring-Kuhanga, Dr. Radikha Khosla, Thomas Moore

    Can homophobic policies win elections?

    Can homophobic policies win elections?

    In Hungary, a crackdown on the civil liberties of the LGBTQ+ community has been passed by the government. Measures include banning the depiction of homosexuality to under-18s in TV programmes, adverts and education.

    An incentive for this is the upcoming election in Hungary. But why could this win the government votes and keep them in power? And why in the past have populist leaders targeted the LGBTQ+ community?

    In this episode, host Dermot Murnaghan is joined by reporter at Politico, Lili Bayer; Dr Richard Mole, professor of political sociology in the school of Slavonic and Eastern European studies at University College London; and Boldizsar Nagy, editor of a book of fairy tales for children.

    StoryCast '21: EP 10/21 On Stage with Amy Winehouse

    StoryCast '21: EP 10/21 On Stage with Amy Winehouse

    In 2021, Sky News is marking some of the century’s biggest news events through the personal stories of lives defined by unforgettable moments from the last 21-years.
    Episode 10 of the 21-part series is On Stage with Amy Winehouse.


    Three days before Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning, she made her final stage appearance alongside her Goddaughter and musical protégée Dionne Bromfield.
    Now for the first time, Dionne reveals the ‘Aunty Amy’ only she knew.
    A decade since Winehouse’s death, she remains one of the UKs top selling artists.
    She also remains eclipsed by the media portrayal: The icon, the beehive hairstyle, the bright lights, paparazzi, and addiction that ultimately destroyed her.
    'On Stage with Amy Winehouse' explores the Amy Dionne remembers, why it’s taken 10-years to process her death, and how finding a ‘sister’ in Winehouse has come to define her.

    ‘On Stage with Amy Winehouse' was produced by Rob Mulhern with Amy Hitchcock.

Missing negative feedback

Twice I have left slightly critical reviews of this show and both seem to have been removed or hidden.

Hardly surprising, really.
