TV: “Climate Change: Updates and Next Strategieis”

The climate crisis is increasingly serious, even though most politicians don’t want to deal with it, and mainstream media fail to report on it adequately. But while politicians and mainstream media negligently fail to act, the problems get worse. The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s February 2012 TV program brings us up to date and explores strategies for making progress.

Our guests – Doug Howell from the Sierra Club and KC Golden from Climate Solutions – are exceptionally well informed.

Doug and KC help us understand what the climate crisis is and the scientific causes. They debunk the claims of the “climate deniers” and discuss shifts in public opinion.

They give an overview of the important global climate conferences at Kyoto, Copenhagen and Durban. They explain the “cap and trade” proposal, ethanol, a carbon tax, and the special interests that prevent our political system from dealing effectively with the problems.  They explain the victory of Washington State’s voters passing Initiative 937.  The discuss other aspects of the climate problem and other solutions.
