Climate_small PEACE TALKS RADIO: THE SERIES ON PEACEMAKING AND NONVIOLENT CONFLICT RESOLUTION On this edition of Peace Talks Radio: a conversation about the 2007 winners of the Nobel Peace Prize - Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. By awarding the prize to Gore and the IPCC, the Nobel committee seemed interested in promoting the link between climate change and the threat to peace. Could the unchecked effects of climate change lead to conflicts and civil war within nations, or war between nations? Could a collective effort to save the planet from the harmful consequences of climate change actually promote peaceful cooperation within and between nations? Peace Talks Radio host Carol Boss talks with two scholars who have studied the possible links between climate change and conflict. First, Dan Smith, Secretary General of International-Alert, an independent peace building organization that works in over 20 countries to promote lasting peace and security in communities affected by violent conflict. He's the author of the report "A Climate of Conflict: The Links Between Climate Change, Peace and War." Later in the program, we'll talk with Dr. Thomas Homer-Dixon (Ph.D.), who overseas the Peace and Conflict Studies Department at the University of Toronto. This program is made available here in both a full 59 minute version as well as a news-cast friendly, 54 minute version. A 29 minute version is available here at PRX.
