“Amid political wrangling and the noise of climate change ‘debates’, temperature rises are having real life consequences and yet we’re learning little about what precisely is happening and what we can do.”


HEAT ISLAND     -     11.03.2018

From IWR Media and broadcast on national station Newstalk, Heat Island is a two-part documentary and podcast that explores the changes beginning to take place on land, along the coast and offshore as climate change takes hold in Ireland and temperatures rise. With contributions from leading researchers and climate scientists, the series uncovers why coastal erosion is rapidly advancing on the east coast, how city engineers are attempting to combat the effects of intense storm events, how valuable fishing grounds are moving hundreds of miles northwards and how the oceans around the island are acidifying.
