Wayne Brittenden's Counterpoint

From Sunday Morning, 11:41 am on 2 December 2012

Wayne Brittenden has been Radio New Zealand's correspondent in several capital cities over the years. Each week he gives fresh insights into a wide variety of topics of national and international concern, followed by Chris Laidlaw’s discussion of the issue with guests. Today, representatives of nearly 200 governments gathered in Dohar, Qatar, last Monday for two weeks of UN-sponsored talks aimed at forging an agreement on climate change. Wayne looks at the obstacles - and contradictions - of the event, and Chris follows up with Dr George Mobus, a University of Washington-based expert on cross-disciplinary approaches to understanding complex adaptive systems.
