      The 2009 National Summit "Sustainable Globalisation: Will it Survive the GFC?" critically examined the impact of the first global recession since World War II on long-standing issues concerning globalisation, including global governance, labour standards and corporate social responsibility as well as climate change and energy security. The Summit assessed in particular the role and the response of the US. This session: Climate change and energy security – Looking towards the Copenhagen Conference Dealing with climate change seems to pose an invidious trade off between the future of the environment and jobs and profits today. Energy security and climate change are quintessential global issues, but global action has proved very difficult. Competition for energy has become an important theme not only for global economics but also for politics and security as well. How will the parties deal with these issues at the Copenhagen Conference? Speakers: Ross Garnaut, Garnaut Climate Change Review Robert Hill, former Australian Ambassador to the UN, former Minister for the Environment Gillian Triggs, Dean of Law, University of Sydney Moderator: Mark Colvin, ABC Radio National http://ussc.edu.au/
