In December, delegates from most of the countries around the globe gathered in Copenhagen to discuss how to slow the pace of climate change. While no full-scale agreement was reached, a political accord emerged from the conference, which China and India endorsed just last week. But rather than discussing the big greenhouse gas emitters, we want to look deeper at the immediate consequences of climate change on small islands — from the Caribbean to the South Pacific. Joining Martin Savidge are Ronald Jumeau and May Boeve to discuss: * Copenhagen conference: results, shortcomings and lessons * Best/worst-case scenarios: small islands, climate change and the future * U.S./wider world: regulation and Obama’s policies.
