Climate Talks in Warsaw as Philippines Gets Relief from Typhoon

Hosted by

Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines and that's raised a challenging question this week at a little-noticed conference on climate change being held in Warsaw: should industrialized nations compensate more vulnerable countries in a world of rising oceans and super storms? The cause of global warming remains controversial, and there's no science that connects a specific storm to climate change. But there's no doubt that icecaps are melting while oceans rise — and that super-storms are more common than they've been before.
