FROM THIS EPISODE

Governor Jerry Brown has received an open letter from almost 50 environmental organizations—supporters of his election.  They like his concerns about Global Warming—but why does he want to weaken California’s trail-blazing environmental-quality law, build massive tunnels to transport water from North to South and allow more development on the shores of Lake Tahoe? Also, a local group that’s helped more than 100 defectors from North Korea.

On our rebroadcast of today's To The Point, cybercrime is as old as the Internet and despite the government’s powers of electronic surveillance, it’s still thriving. How is it still possible to be anonymous online?

Reporter's Notebook An ‘Underground Railroad’ for North Korea Based in Southern California 6 MIN, 22 SEC

America’s view of North Korea includes an oppressive dictatorship, but not the people or culture. LiNK is a group in Torrance that wants to change that. It also supports an underground railroad to help refugees escape and resettle in South Korea or the United States. KCRW’s independent producer Shako Liu reports on LiNK, which stands for Liberty in North Korea.

Main Topic How Green Is Governor Jerry Brown? 18 MIN, 9 SEC

Jerry Brown's famous advice to politicians is, "Paddle a little on the left, paddle a little on the right and keep on going right down the middle." It sounds practical enough but, put into action, it’s a formula that can upset the expectations of an elected official’s supporters. During his third term as Governor, Brown has been preaching about climate change. But, he's also been paddling on the other side.
