Recorded for Estonian Television in November 2007, this "fire-side chat" style interview, took place in the panelled President's room of London's Westminster Central Hall. David Wasdell gives an introduction to feedback dynamics in climate change. He then explains the process by which the IPCC reports are generated, outlining what is included and what is not, and makes a plea for climate science to be updated in real time. The interview concludes with sections dealing with the implications of systems thinking for policy-making, strategies for climate stabilisation, and the concept of a tipping point in the whole earth system which can overwhelm all efforts to stabilise the climate.

The interview was recorded at a conference organised by Be The Change and the World Future Council.
