1:25 How pedestrians could boost Auckland's economy

An estimated half a million people walk around Auckland city every week day. A huge number frequent the businesses there, spending money that goes right back into the local economy. 

But so far there isn't a plan to predict how that number will grow and how we can serve those walkers more  - and put a dollar value on improving the city especially for them. 

Darren Davis, Transport and Land Use Integration programme manager for Auckland Council, has crunched the numbers and presented a business case, calling for Auckland to be more pedestrian-friendly.

What happens in the Arctic doesn't stay in the Arctic.  The ice cover at the top of the world is thinning  and disappearing at an alarming rate. It's something that can even be seen from space. Peter Wadhams, Emeritus Professor of Ocean Physics at the Dept of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in the University of Cambridge,  has seen first hand the changes in the Arctic ice.  He's been measuring it for nearly 50 years and warns the consequences will be catastrophic if the ice continues to disappear in the Arctic and Antarctic.
