With Wilma taking aim at the Florida coast and the hurricane center quickly running out of names we'll speak with global warming guru Ross Gelbspan about "Katrina's True Name". The author, journalist and lecturer tells us why we should prepare for more extreme weather. We'll also be chatting with Laurie David, eco-activist and wife of Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David. Laurie discusses why she's so enthusiastic about curbing global warming as is Steve Cochran, with Environmental Defense's Undo It campaign. We'll also hear why a change in the climate is impacting trout habitat in Montana - and what it means to you - from NRDC's George Black.
Ross Gelbspan Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Boiling point (just published in paperback).
