    Backchat - Climate change, pessimistic or optimistic? ; should there be a law for doxxing

    On today's Backchat, should we be optimistic or pessimistic on climate change? In Davos, Donald Trump said this week that fear and doubt is not a good thought process because this is a time for tremendous hope and joy and optimism and action. But to embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse. Is optimism, a belief that things can be made better, a more effective basis for action that pessimism? Do people not listen to 'prophets of doom? Join the debate with a climate expert and environmental activists.

    Backchat - latest on HK protests and policing

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, Commissioner of Police Chris Tang says it would be an “injustice” if an inquiry is set up solely to look into the policing of the ongoing protests, saying the police watchdog can deal with complaints against officers.
    Mr Tang reiterated that a commission of inquiry could be used as a tool to target the police and incite hatred towards officers, and this would be an injustice. As calls for a Commission of Inquiry grow, is there scope for an inquiry that is fair to all? What should its ambit be, and what powers of investigation would be appropriate? Are the police keeping the peace, or standing in the way of a settlement? By any standards there is a crisis of confidence in the police – how can public trust be restored?
