12 Noon: Sustainable East End: Francesca Rheannon

As the UN Climate Conference winds down in Paris, advocates for cutting the use of fossil fuels world-wide are still looking for action from the earth’s major polluters. Climate scientist James Hansen says: We’re not going to reduce emissions as long as we let fossil fuels be the cheapest form of energy. As long as fuels are dirt cheap, people will keep burning them. The Citizens Climate Lobby is a nation-wide organization that has a plan they say will fix the problem: a carbon tax or fee that would be returned to everyone as a dividend. Tony Ernst spoke with Tip Brolin, a local member of the group at his home in Water Mill last month. Sustainable East End is heard on the 2nd Thursday each month and is archived at sustainableeastend.blogspot.com

  2. Karen Orenstein, Senior international policy analyst with Friends of the Earth, who discusses progress at the ongoing U.N. Climate Summit meeting in Paris and the international landscape of activism that’s gearing up to push for more concerted action to battle climate change after the summit meeting concludes.
  3. Patty Lovera, Assistant Director of Food & Water Watch, who coordinates the group’s food team, examines the FDA’s recent approval of GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) salmon, the first GMO animal product to be permitted to enter the U.S. food system, the possible negative health effects — and organizing being done to launch a consumer boycott.
  4. Mark Colville co-founder of the New Haven, Connecticut Amistad Catholic Worker House, who as a long time social justice activist has been arrested many times in civil disobedience actions across the country, discusses the recent Witness Against Torture action in Cuba he participated in, protesting the continued detention of 107 men being held at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison camp.
