The 300-350 Show: Arctic special - part one

Phil England

24th July, 2009

The first of two episodes featuring Jess Worth - a co-editor of New Internationalist - who has recently finished editing an issue of the magazine focusing on the Arctic which uncovers the largely untold story of how climate change is impacting already on indigenous peoples and their traditional subsistence lifestyles

Indigenous peoples are not just victims in the climate change story they are also proactive in fighting back against fossil fuel developments on their lands. A recent string of successful legal challenges suggest that indigenous peoples could end up playing a critical role in the fight against climate change.

In part two we'll look at the Arctic's central position in the climate tipping point story; the historic international indigenous people's summit on climate change and its implications for the UN climate talks in Copenhagen; and the rush to exploit the fossil fuel resources in the Arctic opened up by the sea ice melt.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
