Today has been a rollercoaster of activity at the UN talks in Copenhagen, but unfortunately still a depressing lack of progress.

In the morning 100s of activists tried to get in to the Bella Centre, where the talks are being held. They attempted to bridge a moat next to the centre with giant inflatable lilos.

Several people were subsequently treated for head wounds and for the effects of tear gas, and a further 250 arrests were made.

An open letter to Barack Obama on the eve of his arrivial at the Climate Summit

the role you must play in keeping hope alive for many millions of
people around the world.
