"Naomi Klein on Climate Debt: Why Rich Countries Should Pay Reparations To Poor Countries For The Climate Crisis" (with audio and video)

Democracy Now! (with audio and video):
With the Copenhagen climate summit two weeks away, best-selling journalist Naomi Klein examines the grass-roots movement behind the climate debate proposal that argues all the costs associated with adapting to a more hostile ecology—everything from building stronger sea walls to switching to cleaner, more expensive technologies—are the responsibility of the countries that created the crisis. Klein also discusses the 10th anniversary of the Seattle WTO protests and the 10th anniversary of her first book, “No Logo.” [includes rush transcript]
Howie P.S.: Klein also talks about the path from Seattle's WTO protests to the climate summit in Copenhagen next month. The United Nations Climate Change Conference will take place from December 7-18, 2009 in Copenhagen.
