Lines In The Sand

Two men stand on a road by a beach. There is a wire fence on the edge of the road. The sky and sea look grey and wintery. There is a rainbow in the sky above the sea.

In late 2023, Kevin Jordan’s dream retirement home by the sea was demolished by the local council. Bought only 14-years prior, it was deemed unsafe and at risk from coastal erosion. What could he do?

In this, the first episode of the Carbon Copy Podcast series 3, we explore the link between Kevin’s story and the dangerous human-made heating of our planet, and learn how communities are coming together to fight for better protection. 

Host Isabelle Sparrow is joined by Save Hemsby Coastline campaigners Kevin and Simon, and Professor Ed Hawkins of the University of Reading’s Centre for Atmospheric Science to see why things need to change, quickly, and what could happen if we continue to cross the lines in the sand.
