World Eco News - Plus Bali Climate Conf. Fails

The Bali climate conference revealed the failure of world governments to tackle climate change. Despite the appearance of agreement, the fossil fueled Bush administration, with it's ally Canada, gave up exactly nothing.

There were no agreements on reductions - just an agreement to keep on talking for a few more years.

Listen to the sorry details, as reported by almost a dozen different news organizations, in 5 countries - plus Greens like George Monbiot, and others in Canada, Australia, Germany, America. Some of the classic sound-bytes plus reporting you haven't heard (because mass media doesn't really care that much...)

This show is packed with a lot more: like an update on Planktos algae seeding demise; Polar Cities (Taiwan calling); Uranium protester Donna Dillman; the world food crisis - jam-packed show.
