Climate adaptation: How resilient is the human race?

Fri, 03 Dec 2021
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions now simply isn't enough to turn back time and prevent the impacts of climate change. For many people, its impacts are being felt right now, and the world needs to adapt to a warming planet.

On this week's episode of Sky News ClimateCast, host Anna Jones speaks to Tricia Thorpe, a resident of Lytton in Canada, a small town that has been devastated by both wildfires and floods in the space of six months. She's building a net-zero house in the hope she can protect her family from whatever climate change throws at her next.

Meanwhile in Uganda, Noah Ssempijja is teaching communities across the country to farm sustainably for the benefit of both the planet and their crop yields. He tells us how he's learned to adapt to the extreme weather he’s experienced.

Are we doing enough to adapt to climate change? We ask climate scientist Dr Xi Hu from the University of Oxford.

StoryCast 21: EP 17/21 Batman raids Buckingham Palace

Wed, 01 Dec 2021
In September 2004, Jason Hatch dressed up in a Batman costume and broke into the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The Queen's home is protected by some of the tightest security measures in the world - but they weren't tight enough for this caped crusader, who climbed on the iconic building and made his way to the main balcony. A casual observer might have been forgiven for thinking Batman had stolen into the palace to execute a daring rescue.
But in reality Mr Hatch was risking his life because he hadn't seen his children in more than eight years - and this superhero dad was set to stage a protest that would soon be beamed around the world.
Would the British establishment bend to the will of Batman?


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.
Batman raids Buckingham Palace is episode 17 of the 21-part series StoryCast ’21

Tue, 30 Nov 2021
Data suggests just 9.6% of qualified clinical psychologists in England and Wales are from ethnically diverse backgrounds, despite representing 14% of the population.

On the Sky News Daily podcast, Dermot Murnaghan is joined by our correspondent Shingi Mararike who has been examining why that is and the possible impact it could be having as we hear from psychotherapist Eugene Ellis, while Marlon Bruce discusses using counselling services, and Eche Egbuonu, who has bipolar disorder, tells us why he was left feeling like "a criminal" in 2016.
