    Climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity today and yet our political systems refuse to move quickly enough to do anything about it. It threatens to undo all the gains that have been made against poverty in recent decades.
    But how does it affect Ireland and where does it fit in the global picture? The film ‘Drop in the Ocean?’ talks to some of Ireland’s leading environmental scientists, writers and activists to find out.
