As world leaders talk, climate change ravages Tasmania

World leaders gathered at the United Nations on Tuesday to discuss the global environment, with the aim of generating momentum ahead of talks this December in Copenhagen, where nations will try to agree on a new treaty to reduce greenhouse gasses.

To hear them talk about climate change behind the walls of the United Nations is one thing. To actually see how it is affecting the environment is quite another.

Tony Birtley of Worldfocus partner Al Jazeera English provides a striking look at what is going on in Tasmania, the Australian island off the southeast corner of the continent.
