 As the Copenhagen talks begin, Abe and Joe talk climate change.
 Hosted by: Abe Proctor and Joe Uris


As the Copenhagen Climate Conference gets under way, the lack of commitment from the United States to taking any concrete steps toward abating climate change looms large. To mark the momentous tasks ahead, 56 newspapers from 45 countries took the unprecedented step of publishing a "world editorial" calling on the developed world to do what must be done to reverse the ravages of the industrial age. With editorial in hand, Abe and Joe talk to listeners about steps both large and small that can be taken to address climate change.
