In the second part of our Arctic special with Jess Worth, co-editor of the New Internationalist, we look at the Arctic’s central position in the climate tipping point story; the rush to exploit the fossil fuel resources in the Arctic opened up by the sea ice melt; and 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.

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

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.
