Aired on 2ser 11th December

This week the final round of climate talks before the Copenhagen agreement next year is happening at the moment in Poznan, Poland.

The Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) - which include countries most at risk from climate change impacts - has made a plea for the world to commit to a strong action plan on climate change at the United Nations talks currently underway in Poznan, Poland. Yesterday Australia was awarded first in the "fossil of the day" awards for countries which attempt to undermine the progress of the negotiations. Third Degree's Jessica Minshall speaks with John Hepburn, Climate Campaigner with Greenpeace.

This week's guest: Owen Pascoe from the Australian Conservation Foundation breaks down the figures and targets that Australia should be aiming for at Poznan, in the White Paper (to be released next Monday 15th December) and at Copenhagen next year. He shares the latest information from climate campaigners in Poznan for the talks.

The NT Intervention is still being rolled out in the NT, despite a recent review and Rudd's election promise to replace the “emergency” legislation with genuine consultation with Aboriginal communities. The Intervention involves the suspension of the racial discrimination act, which is a blemish of Australias human rights record. Wednesday was the International Human Rights Day celebrating the 60th anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human rights. Third Degree's Hannah Walters spoke with Alison Vivian from the Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning.

Presenters: Hannah Walters and Jessica Minshall
