Sunday Salon

Sunday Salon – October 8, 2006

In our first hour…

What’s being done in the Bay Area to combat climate change? What can you do
as an individual? Springing from Al Gore’s arguments in his book and the
film, "An Inconvenient Truth," we’ll talk about actions to slow down global
warming, with special focus on the Bay Area.

Our guests:

Melissa Capria, Climate Action Coordinator, San Francisco Department of
Environment


Ori Skloot, Executive Director of the Berkeley-based Rising Sun Energy
Center

Both the DVD "An Inconvenient Truth" and Al Gore’s book of the same name
(Rodale Books) will be available as premiums when you pledge your support to
KPFA during this hour.

In our second hour…

Countless Iraqi civilians have died. More than 2,700 U.S. soldiers killed.
Bomb and gun attacks are at an all-time high in Bagdhad. And, U.S.
Intelligence Agencies say the ongoing U.S. occupation of Iraq is fueling the
type of sentiment that inspires terrorist attacks. So, who’s benefiting? A
few U.S. Corporations. Big time.

Our guests:

Filmmaker Robert Greenwald, director and producer of the new film "Iraq for
Sale: the War Profiteers
"

Robert Young Pelton, author, "Licensed to Kill: Hired Guns in the War on
Terror" (Crown)

Both "Iraq for Sale" and "Licensed to Kill" will be available as premiums
when you pledge your support to KPFA this hour.
