The New Climate War: A conversation with Dr. Michael E.Mann
On this special episode of ClimateCast, guest host Samantha Washington is joined by Dr Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University, in the United States, to discuss his new book The New Climate War.
Mann is one of the world’s most prominent climate scientists, who first shot to fame in the 1990s when he published possibly the most famous chart in all of climate science - now known as simply the hockey stick graph - which showed how burning fossil fuels and the resulting greenhouse gases, caused global temperatures to rise. Something most of us now take for granted.
Sky News' Climate reporter Victoria Seabrook also joins Sam in the studio to discuss all of this week's climate headlines, including a damning report published by the Climate Change Committee which said the government is failing to ensure the UK can cope with climate change already happening, how the UK is using renewable energy from Norway which could power over one million British homes using the world's largest undersea electricity cable, and how extreme weather has caused a worrying shortage of chocolate, coffee and wine.
UFO report: Are we alone?
On the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan we examine how sightings of unidentified flying objects went from conspiracy theory to US government inquiry – after officials told American media they can’t confirm or rule out alien activity.
We hear from Sean Cahill, who was the Chief Master-at-Arms on the USS Princeton in 2004 during a multi-day UFO encounter, plus 'UFO researcher’ Chris Jones and Scotland's Astronomer Royal Prof Catherine Heymans.

Loneliness: Can a ‘contactless society’ reconnect this summer?
Economist Noreena Hertz believes we’re living in ‘The Lonely Century’. Loneliness is fuelling extremism, poor workplace productivity and a booming industry of goods designed to help us feel less alone. So, how should leaders help a disconnected planet come together in a post-COVID world?
On the Sky News Daily podcast, host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to Noreena about people-watching in Euston Station, and why public libraries could be a solution to the loneliness epidemic. Plus, Scott Rosenbaum explains why his 'Rent A Friend' website is becoming so popular.

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.
