OnePlanet: In Search of Africa's Ice Feb. 17, 2012

from One Planet· · 2 listeners

This week, One Planet goes to the glaciers of Uganda. We climb the Rwenzori Mountains with the glacier monitoring group Project Pressure, joining them for the views, the chilly air - and the discovery that not all the glaciers are where they used to be. Also on the show, we talk energy poverty by torchlight. More than a billion people around the world live without access to electricity, affecting everything from their health to their business opportunities. Mike finds out more at a new photography exhibition - in the dark.
