AIR DATE: March 31, 2010

"What we're trying to do is get carbon out of our emissions so we can keep the worst impact of climate change from happening."
Professor Dan Schrag, Director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment

But, even with an atmosphere of agreement that capping carbon is good for the planet, world leaders are still generating a lot of hot air arguing how to do it. And, the inconvenient truth is that this isnt just an international political problem - the actual process of greening cars, cows, and coal-fired power plants will be even more exhausting than getting 190 countries to sign a treaty. Growing new wind farms, saving the rainforest, and scrubbing smokestacks will take time, and a whole lot of money. And in the current economic climate, that's a tall order.

This special programming takes the place of KNPR's State of Nevada's Weekend Select.
