Description

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.
