The fight for the environment does not stop at the edge of Antarctica's icebergs. The front lines stretch from the WTO and South Korean farms to our shopping bags and gas tanks. With so many simultaneous environmental combat zones, many questions arise. Who is fighting this war? And who is going to win? We have compiled a panel of leading authors, each with a unique perspective on environmental battles. They use stories to explain what is happening to the environment around the globe, and look at how we are being directly affected at home and how each of us can play a part.

Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. wine and hors d'oeuvres reception
