    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about the $580 billion project to build three artificial islands off Lantau, to provide more than 200,000 new flats and a new central business district. 
    The Kau Yi Chau Artificial Islands project has been described by the government as a major solution to the city's land supply and housing shortage. But 11 green groups have jointly called on the administration to scrap the plan, voicing concerns about the environmental impact.
    What do you think of this project? Is it worth the cost to address Hong Kong’s land shortage? What about its impact on the environment?
    After 9:15am, we’ll look at a call on the government to stop using rat trap glue boards after it was found that at least 25 wild animals had also been caught in them.

    On Wednesday’s Backchat, we’re talking about the rise in electricity tariffs.
    Both of Hong Kong’s power firms are raising fees, citing the surge in global energy prices and the energy crisis caused by the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
    Taking into account rebates and fuel charges, tariffs for CLP Power customers are set to rise by 6.4 percent in January compared to now, while the figure is 5.5 percent for Hong Kong Electric.
    The government says it asked the utilities to keep the fee hike to a minimum… but how will the higher prices affect the overall cost of living — especially for the needy? How much do promised subsidies mitigate this increase? Are high energy prices unavoidable in this age of heightened geo-political tensions?
    After 9.15am, we’ll look at sexuality education in secondary schools after a study found that we are locals teaching is inadequate in this area. 
    And at 9.25am, we'll be joined by RTHK sports correspondent Atom Cheung with the latest on the World Cup 2022.
