The Environmental Protection Agency released a comprehensive report Thursday that examines the repercussions of global climate change on humans .
But critics say the agency is interested in keeping the findings under wraps. Although the report was ready for release in April, the agency stalled its release; and despite its scientists' own findings, the E-P-A decided last week to not regulate greenhouse gas emissions.
F-S-R-N spoke with Rick Piltz, Director of Climate Science Watch about the study.
Barbara Ehrenreich is the author of many significant, entertaining, and well-received books, including “Nickel and Dimed: on Not getting by in America”, “Bait and Switch: the Futile Pursuit of the American Dream”, and “For Her own Good: 150 years of Expert’s Advice to Women”.
She returned to Portland on Wednesday to talk at Powell’s City of Books about her latest book “This Land is Their Land: Reports from a Divided Nation”.
Here are excerpts from her talk, as recorded by KBOO’s Ethan Scarl:
