Ideas for 24 April 2011 - Climate Futures

From Ideas, 11:06 am on 24 April 2011

Ideas examines the concept of resilience. Essentially it's the strengthening of the capacity of any town, city or country to withstand the knocks imposed on it by nature or man-made mishaps. Chris recently hosted a breakfast debate on the topic at Te Papa - the panelists were environmental journalist and author Fred Pearce; Australian climate scientist Professor David Karoly; NZ engineer Martin Kreft, who plays a leading role in project financing and insurance issues; and Colin James, NZ political journalist and author.
