There is renewed focus on the possibility of a carbon tax from both sides of the issue. Climate Crock’s Peter Sinclair joins us to share his expert opinion on the chances this win-win-win proposal will actually happen, and what it means that opponents are ramping up their rhetoric.
For the past 4 years, Peter Sinclair has been asking, begging, cajoling, and otherwise trying to persuade the world's leading climate scientists to explain to him what they do, and what their findings are, in words that average people can understand. In particular, Peter has been trying to get expert responses to the disinformation about climate change that one hears too often on certain cable news channels, the internet, or talk radio. For 2 years he's been collecting results of his investigations in a youtube series called "Climate Denial Crock of the Week". There are now some 75 videos in the series, and scientists, professors, researchers, students, journalists, congressional staffers, and curious laypeople have been tuning in for a better understanding of the most critical environmental and policy issue of this century. They also - in many cases - get a good laugh! His blogsite is climatecrocks.com. We'll get a sample, and Peter's story, in this hour-long interview.
