Reducing carbon emissions is imperative. But how?
The quest for a new Kyoto Protocol is generating plenty of hot air around the globe. "Capping Carbon" explores the changing climate of carbon emissions — from the Peruvian rainforest, where economic development is slashing a weapon in the war on warming, to the U.S., where businesses are struggling to scrub their smokestacks and the carbon credit debate is heating up on Capitol Hill. Capping Carbon airs Sunday, April 18 at 10 p.m. on AM1370/HD-FM91.5-2.
America Abroad is co-hosted by Ray Suarez and Deborah Amos. Suarez is also senior correspondent of the PBS television program The NewsHour. Amos covers Iraq for NPR News, having returned to work with NPR after a decade with ABC news.
