The Power of Ordinary People; Interview; Madeline Ostrander & The Breakthrough 15
Global Greenhouse gas emissions jumped a record 5.9% in 2010. The Kyoto protocols are a complete failure. Now representatives of the top polluting nations have come together in Durban South Africa. Their only commitment appears to be no commitment at all. Pretty dismal outlook, until you remember the power of ordinary people. Yes! Magazine is doing just that with their Breakthrough 15 awards. Join me, Linda Olson-Osterlund, and Yes! Magazine editor Madeline Ostrander on A Deeper Look. We will learn about Ordinary people engaged in the radical reinvention of social systems and political structures. People taking on our damaged environment and hurting communities.
