Poznan Climate Negotiations
The Kyoto Protocol, which was signed in 1997, was a first step for international climate negotiations. Last year, on the back of the world’s first climate election, the Rudd government went to Bali pushing for strong targets. This week, Minister for Climate Change Penny Wong will enter negotiations in Poland without having set any domestic targets at all.
Libby King speaks with Jane Holden, the new Executive Director of the Climate Action Network Australia who is in Poland.

Guest Nicky Ison from Australian Students Environment Network and the Institute for Sustainable Futures - talks about International Climate Conferences and Australia's position on feed-in tarrifs for the renewables.

Olympic Dam Mine
Last week mining giant BHP Billiton hold its annual shareholder meeting attracting a large number of protestors outside the Melbourne venue. The company walked away from its bid to take over Rio Tinto but it was the proposal to expand the Olympic Dam mine 500 km north of Adelaide that caused the protest. Under the new 20 billion dollar expansion, BHP Billiton will continue to starve the water reserves of the Great Artesian Basin and increase the mining of uranium.
Anne von Fehrn speaks with Jim Green of Friends of the Earth Australia.

CCS Bill passes the Senate
A few weeks ago, a bill passed through the Senate, making Australia the first nation to legislate on carbon capture and storage, otherwise known as ‘clean coal’ technology. This involves burying carbon underground, more specifically offshore beneath the ocean floor.

Phil Freeman, Climate Campaigner at the Australian Conservation Foundation, speaks here with Nick Hollins.

Presenters Libby King and Tessa Dowdell
