FROM THIS EPISODE

With no less than twelve TV news cameras and C-Span in the room today, Governor Schwarzenegger delivered the keynote address at a Washington conference on the environment.  We hear about going green without guilt. Also, a tent city at Los Angeles City Hall.

Main Topic Going Green without Guilt 18 MIN, 44 SEC

From the covers of Newsweek and Outside to a heavily covered speech today in Washington, Governor Schwarzenegger is pushing a new kind of environmentalism.  At Georgetown University, claiming that environmentalism is at a "tipping point," he advocated that people work for more fuel-efficient forms of transportation rather than give up Hummers or private planes. He compared the evolution of environmentalism to that of body-building, which once was seen as the province of "weird fanatics" working out in gyms that were like dungeons. Can there be environmentalism without sacrifice? 

Guests:
Terry Tamminen, Climate Policy Director, New America Foundation
Bill Magavern, Senior Representative of the Sierra Club in California

Making News Homeless Protest at City Hall 5 MIN, 32 SEC

Homeless advocates are establishing a tent city on the south lawn of City Hall, and Mayor Villaraigosa tried to steal their thunder with an op-ed piece in today's Los Angeles Times. Villaraigosa said he's doing his best to provide supportive, affordable housing, but that LA's homeless problem is so big that even a billion dollars is a drop in the bucket.  Bob Erlenbusch is Executive Director of the LA Coalition to End Hunger and Homelessness.
