From #StudentStrike to #ClimateSolution, Vermonters confront climate change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has called for radical reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, but emissions locally, nationally and globally continue to rise.  In response, some 54 towns–about one-fourth of Vermont communities–have passed Town Meeting Day resolutions calling for a halt to new fossil fuel infrastructure, 100% renewable energy, and a transition to renewable power. And Vermont students have called for a student strike on March 15, 2019. We talk with Vermont climate action leaders about new strategies for confronting climate change. (March 6, 2019 broadcast)
