    Extreme weather and waste reduction / Hong Kong's updated children growth charts

    On today's Backchat, we're talking about extreme weather and waste reduction, which were key themes of Earth Day on Monday.

    This year's Earth Day came amid a series of weather events recorded around the world over the past few days.
    Authorities in Guangdong said three people had died and 11 were missing after continuous heavy rainfall in the province.
    Last week, Dubai, in the Middle East, saw its heaviest rainfall in 75 years, bringing the city to a standstill.
    Weather scientists largely attribute an increasing incidence of extreme events to climate change, with some environmentalists voicing concern about the
    impact on our landfills.
    So what can we as individuals do to alleviate the effects of changing weather patterns? And how can we further improve on our waste reduction record?
    After 9:45, we're learning more about a new growth chart for children based on a major new study.

    Public consultation on noise pollution / Proposals to increase domestic helpers' wages

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Mike Rowse

    On Friday's Backchat, we’re looking into a consultation on amendments to the Noise Control Ordinance.

    Under the proposed changes, shopkeepers could be banned from using loudspeakers to promote their products, with a fixed penalty of $10,000 for noise disturbance.
    At the same time, events held on 10 specified festivals may be able to extend from the current 11pm until 1am.
    Are you affected by noise pollution? What do you think of the proposals? We want to hear from you.
    After 9:50, we discuss calls to increase domestic helpers’ wages.
