Global Warming Conference, UK Report and US Politics in a Democratic Congress

Hosted by

A British study predicts disruption comparable to world wars and depressions unless there's immediate action to curb climate change.  This week in Kenya, 180 nations are trying to agree on timetables. On Capitol Hill, James Inhofe calls global warming "the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people." California Democrat Barbara Boxer, who’ll replace the Oklahoma Republican next year as chair of a key senate committee, urges that "time is running out and we need to move forward.”  She'll propose new laws to set limits on greenhouse gases. Is American policy in for a change? If China and India don't get on board, will it make any difference?
