229. Heating or Eating? Energy Poverty Crisis, Environmental Justice & A Right to Housing

In this Reboot Republic Rory talks to Clodagh Daly, Manager of the Centre for Environmental Justice, and Mary Heavey, Housing Solicitor, Community Law & Mediation, an independent community law centre based in Coolock in Dublin and Limerick. We discuss issues of rising energy poverty, how the housing crisis, energy poverty and cost of living are combining leading to people facing the choice between heating or eating, environmental justice, the need to nationalise energy companies as a sensible approach for energy provision and tackling energy poverty. We also discuss the right to housing, and why the Housing Commission should reccommend a referendum on the right to housing to be held.
