Brian has lived in North Yorkshire for over 10 years. He is very interested in climate related issues and has recently edited a climate book due for release later this year. Air pollution and chemical pollution are particular areas of interest for him.

Brian McHugh discusses how climate change is already impacting Yorkshire, and what is being done by local organisers to counter it.
