News & Cultural Programming at KBOO

KBOO News | List of Public Affairs shows on KBOO

KBOO community radio has been bringing diverse communities together for forty years.  We offer over twenty hours per day of programs that are produced locally by volunteer community members.  This is critical for having local voices on the airwaves at a time when media ownership is consolidating and the remaining local entities turn to syndicated programs.  Furthermore we offer genuine diversity.  In a city that is over three-quarters white, we offer programming by and for Asian, African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those from many other backgrounds.  We put youth (with a part-time youth coordinator assisting), veterans, and the disabled on the air.  And we bring these communities together on and off the air!

The Story of Stuff w/Annie Leonard--Consumers & Climate Change

Categories:

Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/03/2008

 

Much of what is said about responding to climate change and the coming climate crisis puts the responsibility on the consumer, on the individual.  We're told to buy fluorescent light bulbs, or hybrid cars, or recycled paper, or other products - and that's supposed to somehow save us from massive species extinction.  Or we hear about 'carbon trading', a system that will allow the largest polluters to keep polluting at the same level.
