Smith College biologist sees complexities of carbon reducation policymaking first hand at U.N. climate conference
AMHERST, MA/COPENHAGEN, DENMARK
For the last two weeks in Copenhagen, representatives from more than 190 nations have been negotiating, protesting, and seeking consensus on a strategy to fight global climate change. Biologist Tom Litwin has been there most of this week. He's the head of the Clark Science center at Smith College. His work in Siberia, Alaska and elsewhere has allowed him to see first hand the impact of climate change. We caught up with Litwin before President Obama arrived. He told WFCR's Jill Kaufman that COP15, as the conference is referred to, has been an eye opening experience.
