The Pulse

Type:VideoLanguage:EnglishCategories:NewsCurrent AffairsStatus:On going Description: RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page

Marine & electronic waste in HK and interview with Christine Loh, acting Secretary for the Environme 00:21:57 2016-07-23
Rubbish, garbage, trash, waste. No, we’re not talking about recent events in Legco but the 9,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste Hong Kong produces every day, meaning that everyone who lives here is, on average, responsible for 1.36 kilogrammes. Up to 99% of local solid waste that is recycled is then exported for further processing overseas.
The problem is even worse than usual this year as torrential rainstorms have led to Hong Kong’s beaches being inundated with marine waste from the mainland. And then there’s the issue of electronic or e-waste, not all of which is our own. Also with us to talk about these issues is Christine Loh, acting Secretary for the Environment.
