Media Alert: Turkeys, Afghanistan and Copenhagen


turkey twn.jpgJust a friendly head’s up that at 1:06 pm sharp, I’ll be chatting with the erudite Jerome McDonnell on Chicago Public Radio’s “Worldview.” Along with Brian Lehrer, Warren Olney, Diane Rehm, and a few others, Jerome is one of the best ideas wrestlers in serious radio journalism. The topic will be Afghanistan.
Then on CNN sometime during the day, I will be chatting about President Obama’s Afghanistan course — and perhaps something about his announcement that he will be going to the Copenhagen Climate Summit (and may even mention that he just saved “Courage” the White House turkey — though Obama failed to say whether “Carolina”, the alternate, gets carved tomorrow and Bo gets a drumstick).
And at 4:10 pm EST (not sure what time that is in Australia), I’ll be chatting with radio personality Mark Parton about the big climate change politics unfolding in Australia and how President Obama’s announcement about Copenhagen may change the gameboard.

    The US and China have finally announced real numbers for their targets to reduce carbon emissions. Unfortunately these numbers, especially from the US, are far too weak. We need a strong agreement at Copenhagen, but this won’t get us there. In many ways, a weak agreement at Copenhagen could be even worse than no agreement, as it would lock in targets too small to make a significant difference.

    Climate Change is tabled to make certain the USA stays behind the rest of the developed world in terms of energy independence. Mission Accomplished.
    In a decade we’ll be behind where most of the EU is at right now! Maybe they’ll make things effeciently to a degree they can buy out all American manufacturing.
    Ownership status, good for everywhere but America. Welcome to the global path of progress…
