Down To Earth is Newstalk’s dedicated programme about our natural environment and how we address the limits of our planet's resources.

From climate change to species extinction, we cover the toughest challenges with leading experts and celebrated thinkers. You'll hear diverse views, as we try to find common ground in how to fix our most pressing global crises. 

This week it's all about air pollution.

NUI Galway scientist Dr. Clare Noone explains why Ireland’s air quality is no laughing matter 

Dr Luke Clancy, Director General of the TobaccoFree Research Institute Ireland, on life before and after the smoky coal ban.

Martin Fitzpatrick heads the Air Quality and Noise Control unit for Dublin City Council, and explains what we need to do next to breathe easier 

Comedian-writer Maeve Higgins will be our first guest on 'My Green Life' - where we'll find out about how she relates to environmental issues in her every day life.
