Today, we have a different conversation with environmentalist <a href="http://markhertsgaard.com/" target="_blank">Mark Hertsgaard</a>, author of <em>HOT: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth</em>. 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, the Peace Corps celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. On <a href="http://www.wbez.org/globalactivism" target="_blank"><em>Global Activism</em></a> we commemorate the volunteer program’s legacy with several former Peace Corps volunteers.</p></p> Thu, 04 Aug 2011 14:43:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode/worldview-8411 Living through the next 50 years on a warmer earth http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-02-24/living-through-next-50-years-warmer-earth-82839 <img typeof="foaf:Image" src="http://llnw.wbez.org/94466396.jpg" alt="" /><p><p>For 20 years, journalist, author and environmentalist <a target="_blank" href="http://markhertsgaard.com/">Mark Hertsgaard</a> has investigated climate change, but it took the birth of his daughter to bring the truth home.
