Governor Schwarzenegger's 'Guiltless Green'
Listen to/Watch entire show:
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.
Homeless Protest at City Hall ()
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.

Going Green without Guilt ()
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?
