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.
