Will Russia Produce a Green (and Gold) Olympics?

Hosted by

As President of Russia, one of Vladimir Putin's crowning achievements was securing the Winter Olympic Games for 2014. As Prime Minister, he's facing criticism. While Canada is getting high praise for making sure this year's Vancouver Winter Olympics were Green and "carbon neutral," Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund have complained to the United Nations that Russia's plans for Sochi are destroying Europe's last pristine Alpine wilderness. Fred Weir is based in Moscow for the Christian Science Monitor.
