In Kyoto, Japan, this week, delegates have been gathering to hammer out an agreement to reduce emissions of so-called greenhouse gases — gases that cause an increase in the temperature of the planet. The most important of these is carbon dioxide, which is produced by burning fossil fuels, like oil and coal.

Right now the snag in negotiations is from a plan to buy and sell the right to pollute.

Guests:

  • Thomas Martsell, a reporter for the German radio network, DeutcheWelle.
  • Ross Gelbspan, the author of ??The Heat Is On: The High Stakes Battle Over Earth’s Threatened Climate published by Addison-Wesley.
  • Joshua Karliner, the director of the Transnational Resource and Action Center, a group that organizes to confront the abuses of global corporations and to build alternatives to corporate rule. He is the author of the newly published book, ??The Corporate Planet: Ecology and Politics in the Age of Globalization.
