EARTH MATTERS is a weekly segment on KPFA radio's investigative news program, FLASHPOINTS.
An interview with Anne Peterman and Orin Langelle, founders and co-directors of the Global Justice Ecology Project.
Why are genetically engineered trees so dangerous to all forest ecosystems? How do tree farms in the global South effect local ecosystems and indigenous people? How are the United Nations and the World Bank facilitating the wholesale privatization of the Earth's atmosphere in the new "Carbon Market"? Who is responsible for recklessly letting this technology "out of the bag"? Can tree plantations "sequester" Greenhouse Gases effectively?
MP3, 11:07 minutes.
