arctic 2

In the second part of our Arctic special featuring New Internationalist co-editor Jess Worth we look at

  • the historic Indigenous Peoples’ Global Summit on Climate Change and its implications for the UN climate talks in Copenhagen at the end of the year
  • the Arctic’s central position in the climate tipping point story and
  • the rush to exploit the fossil fuel resources in the Arctic opened up by the sea ice melt

We also hear from Vietnam vet and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge campaigner, Robert Thompson, about the potential impacts of an oil spill and about the oil company tactic of bribery that has attempted to split and buy-out local opposition to oil drilling.
