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

Jim Sterba talks about his book “Nature Wars: The Incredible Story of How Wildlife Comebacks Turned Backyards into Battlegrounds” in which he examines how the last five hundred years of wildlife plundering, deforestation, conservation and suburban sprawl along with our “denatured” life disconnected from the natural world have led to unmanageable wildlife populations in this country including the deer plaguing our region.
