Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

A look at sustainable development, how the world’s population can continue to sustain itself without destroying the planet in the process. In particular, a look at world climate changes and global warming, issues on the agenda in this last week of an international congress taking place at the
United Nations on sustainable development.

Kamarakafego discusses the effects of global warming on
island states. He argues that small island developing states can best avoid
the impacts of climate change by shifting to alternative fuels and
legislating against pollution themselves in the face of failing global
initiatives.

Guest names:

Dr. Pauulu Kamarakafego, ecologist and head of International Network of Small Island Developing States of NGOs and Indigenous People
