Journalist Mark Hertsgaard has dubbed the world's youth "Generation Hot."

Feb. 24, 2011

Today we'll talk with environmentalist Mark Hertsgaard, author of HOT: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth. He believes the challenge is no longer just to halt and reverse global warming, but also to live through the substantial climate change that is now locked in for the coming decades. And, in many developing countries, people with disabilities are neglected and left to die. On Global Activism, we’ll hear about the Resource Foundation, an organization working to change this dynamic by training people in occupational therapy.
