The Politics of Climate Change; Supergraphic Advertising

Hosted by

There's a crusade on against supergraphics draped over Los Angeles buildings and a crusade to save the biggest outdoor advertisement of all: the Hollywood sign. We talk with City Attorney Carmen Trutanich.  Also, the US census and what it means for LA. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Americans were increasingly worried about climate change until last year, when there was a surge in skepticism that's still growing. Is it the economy? The news media? What are the consequences for public policy in an election year?
