Beyond Copenhagen - Now what?


Are current corporate-dominated international institutions inadequate to the task of meeting the multiple planetary survival challenges they themselves have helped create? As headlines proclaim that COP15 was a 'catastrophe,' that a global climate deal is 'all but impossible in 2010,' and progressive NGOs,' "The forces trying to tackle climate change are in disarray, wandering in small groups around the battlefield like a beaten army," according to one diplomat, Richard Heinberg of the Post Carbon Institute (postcarbon.org), talks about the factors contributing to the stalemate in the Copenhagen climate summit, the other 'game ending' challenges confronting the current economic system, and the bottom-up steps necessary to move to a post-carbon economy. Interviewed by EON's James Heddle.
