Paul Wolfowitz was confirmed as the new President of the World Bank on March 31, 2005 and will join the Bank on June 1. Terra Verde’s April 29 show will consider predictions of the World Bank’s environmental performance under
Wolfowitz. Wolfowitz is known as one of the leading proponents of the Iraq
war. This show will be presented in honor of Bay Area activist and
humanitarian worker Marla Ruzicka, who lost her life on April 16, 2005 in
Iraq. Terra Verde co-hosts Michelle Chan-Fishel and Adrienne Fitch-Frankel
first got to know Ruzicka in the mid-1990s, when she was a young intern at
the 50 Years is Enough Campaign, an organization that monitors the
environmental and human rights performance of the World Bank.
