In a week that confirmed that Ireland is the worst offender in the EU for green house gas emissions, our video this week is one called 'Climate Generation' by Lorna Gold who recounts her personal journey in coming to understand 'climate change' both as an activist and as a mother of two young boys.

Lorna Gold works for Trócaire, the Irish Catholic Development Agency. She is a specialist in International Development who has worked across academic and NGO contexts for almost two decades. She writes and speaks extensively on Pope Francis’ teaching in Laudato Sí. She holds a PhD in Economic Geography from Glasgow University and currently lectures in Applied Social Studies in Maynooth University. She has published widely, being the editor and author of numerous books, journals, policy reports and academic papers. She is a regular contributor to public debate on climate justice in Ireland and internationally and helped co-found ‘Stop Climate Chaos’ Ireland in 2006. She is vice-chair of the Global Catholic Climate Movement and a member of the Irish Government’s Advisory Group on the National Climate Dialogue. She is originally from Scotland and is married.
