This is the first ever international climate hearing and it took place inside the conference centre at the UN climate talks in Copenhagen. Former Irish President and UN High Commissioner summerises the hearing and gives the official verdict. There is also a speech from Archbishop Desmond Tutu about how climate change is affecting us all and we are all in this together.
The verdict was then handed over to Executive Secretary for the UN climate talks, Ivo de Boer.
