    Fatal fire in Jordan / Greenpeace's waste-charging trial

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about fire safety -- after a blaze in Jordan left five people dead and more than 40 injured on Wednesday.

    Authorities have yet to confirm the cause of the tragedy, but a Fire Services Department spokesperson told RTHK earlier that some of the fire doors were broken, which may have led to heavy smoke in one of the staircases.
    According to a Buildings Department statement, the 60-year-old building had earlier been requested to carry out repair works, which includes the replacement of fire doors, and the provision of protected lobbies for the escape staircase. But the requests have not yet been met.
    How fire compliant are our buildings? What more can be done to improve fire safety?
    After 9:45, we find out more about a green group's waste- charging trial.

    Extreme weather in Hong Kong / Fake travel agency page scam

    主持人:Jim Gould and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat we’re talking about a new survey predicting more frequent episodes of extreme weather in Hong Kong over the next two to three decades.

    The territory recorded its hottest summer this year since records began in 1884, and was also hit by Super Typhoon Saola and record-breaking rainfall in September.  

    According to the study, conducted jointly by three universities CUHK, HKU and HKUST, there'll be a significant increase in the amount of rainfall by the middle of this century, which will lead to more landslides and flooding.

    It also says more hot weather, particularly hot nights, will become a feature. As well as talking to specialists about the climate science, we'll also be looking at what we can do as individuals to protect

    our health and safety, and what effect such conditions may have at the less well-off end of society.  

    After 9:45, we talk about fake social media accounts posing as travel agencies offering special deals online.
