    In today’s show we have an interview with Kassie Siegel from the Center for Biological Diversity on why President Obama doesn’t need to wait for Congress to bring scienced-based targets to the table when he comes to Copenhagen at the end of next week. We’ve an interview with Professor Tim Jackson on why Copenhagen needs to restsructure our economy if it is to be truly successful in combating climate change. Frederika Whitehead takes a trip to the parallel People’s summit that’s happening here in Copenhagen and picks up some testimony. We give the Carbon Town Cryer‘s heart-melting Copenhagen song “The Overflowing” its first airing. But to start things off, on the day that President Obama picked up his Nobel Peace Prize we have a reading of the letter sent by African civil society organisation Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance to President Obama, pleading with him to fulfil the promise of his inauguration speech and to not betray his brothers and sisters in Africa when he comes to Copenhagen.

    Voices from marchers on the Stop Climate Chaos “Wave” demonstration recorded by Arthur Girling. The first part of Phil England’s interview with Sarah-Jayne Clifton – author of Friends of the Earth’s “A Dangerous Distraction” report on why carbon-markets are a false solution to climate change. Here Sarah talks about the risk of a sub-prime carbon crash; the reality behind the EU’s climate financing proposals and possible “innovative” sources of climate financing. Tom Besley visits Bristol to explore Platform’s “C-Words” exhibition which blurs the boundaries of art and activism in the run up to Copenhagen. Here he interviews Platform’s co-director James Marriot about the exhibition and the issues it raises. Tom also speaks to Isa from the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination who have been designing bike sculptures as part of the exhibition which will be used as part of the “Reclaim Power” action in Copenhagen next week. The show ends with speakers from the Stop Climate Chaos “The Wave” demonstration in the UK challenging the UK Climate and Energy Secretary Ed Miliband’s approach to the Copenhagen talks.

    Just before the start of the historic UN climate talks open in Copenhagen, UK civil society will come together and encircle the Houses of Parliament. They will demand that the UK and Europe do much, much more than they have pledged so far as part of a fair and effective climate agreement in Copenhagen. We speak to the director of the Stop Climate Chaos coalition, Ashok Sinha, about The Wave and other events they have planned for December 5th and about their policy platform. The SCC brings together over 100 organisations with a combined membership of around 11 million people – one in six of the population.

    Their demands include:

    On 16th December thousands of activists will attempt to take over the United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen for a day and set the agenda. In contrast to many of the false solutions in play at the talks, protestors will advance a common sense agenda based on the principles of Climate Justice. We speak to Chris Kitchen who has been helping to organise the mass mobilisations with the Climate Justice Action coalition about the week of actions that has been planned. We also speak to Camp for Climate Action legal advisor Frances Wright about the legal context for the protests. CJA’s common platform includes:

    • leaving fossil fuels in the ground
    • socialising and decentralising energy
    • relocalising our food production
    • recognising and repaying ecological and climate debt
    • respecting indigenous peoples’ rights
    • regenerating our eco-systems

    As the UN climate talks end in Barcelona, the prospects for getting a fair deal which will be strong enough to stop catastrophic climate change are looking slim. In response, a handful of courageous people have started a hunger strike for Climate Justice. The second half of this programme is an extended edit from the press conference at which Anna Keenan and Sara Svenson announced the start of the Climate Justice Fast in Barcelona on 6 November. It leaves us speechless…

    In the first half of the programme we take a look at some of the ways that the poor majority world is disadvantaged in the UN climate talks and at some of the dirty tactics employed by the rich world. The South African delegation reminds us what everyone agreed to under the Bali Roadmap in 2007 and why the rich world seems intent on reneging on that. And in extracts from the UNFCCC’s final press conference, General Secretary Yvo de Boer gives his expectations on the Copenhagen deal in relation to whether it will be legally binding (no, but maybe we can tie that up next year) and whether it will be informed by the latest science (no chance).

    Our half-time report on the UN climate talks in Barcelona is told in the words of the poor majority world participants. The story of the African Group’s stand at the talks is told in their own words.

    Also this week the UK government found another £40 billion to bailout of the banks just one week after the EU heads of state were unable to guarantee any new money to meet their obligations and to poor countries and to seal a fair deal in Copenhagen…
