What’s up in Montreal?
Just the future of the planet being determined by representatives from
156 countries that ratified the Kyoto Protocol, coming together to
hammer out specifics on how to slow damage from greenhouse gases. All
that’s missing is US, the largest contributor to global warming! We’ll
hear from Michele Perrault, VP of Sierra Club International, as well as Jennifer Layke, with the World Resources Institute’s Climate Program, both checking in from the Conference of Parties.
Assuming they make the right decisions – and Christmas comes this year
– we’ll get some ideas for a greener, more gratifying, holiday season
from Betsy Taylor at the Center For A New American Dream, as well as tips for kicking the holiday junkie habit from EcoTalk’s Science Editor, Shana Weber. And there’s bad news for bears – why the administration is taking aim at the endangered Yellowstone Grizzly. The NRDC’s Louisa Wilcox will tell us why we should care if the bear is de-listed. Global warming, green holidays and grizzlies, oh my!
