US blocks climate change declaration at Arctic Council

The US refused to sign any declaration mentioning climate change at the Arctic Council.

The US refused to sign any declaration mentioning climate change at the Arctic Council. We ask what next for the group of nations bordering the Arctic Circle. Peter Winsor is director of the WWF Arctic Programme, and we also hear from Arild Moe, a research professor at the Fridtjof Nansen Institute. Also in the programme, with the US economy growing strongly, we consider the likely impact on next year's presidential election, with our regular US economic commentator Irwin Stelzer of the Hudson Institute.
