Wayne Brittenden's Counterpoint
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 Laidlawâ€™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.
