The Med is getting heatstroke. From May to August last year, nearly the entire surface of the Mediterranean was hit by marine heatwaves.
Why are the heatwaves happening, what’s the impact on corals and fish, and can we do anything about it?
To discuss this troubling rise in temperatures, Euronews science reporter Jeremy Wilks is joined by Joachim Garrabou, a senior researcher from the Spanish National Research Council and Emma Cebrian, a researcher at the Centre of Advanced Studies of Blanes in Spain.
And at the end of the episode, renowned Swiss explorer and innovator, Bertrand Piccard, the first man to fly around the world in solar-powered aircraft tells us a moving tale of his family’s ocean exploits.
