Next Generation Already Participating on Climate

James Koshiba and Carol Feinga were this week's guests.
Energy Futures joins the rest of the planet in directing our attention toward Copenhagen, Denmark, where the officially named Conference of Participants will attempt to hammer out an agreement among 192 nations to cut greenhouse gases in the decades ahead.

Our guests on our most recent program (11/23) were Carol Feinga from the Kokua Hawaii Foundation and James Koshiba of Kanu Hawaii. Our topic was educating the next generation(s) about the consequences of climate change and sea level riser. The program can be accessed at Hawaii Public Radio’s website.

Guests next week on Energy Futures will include Copenhagen delegate Maxine Burkett, director of the Center on Climate Adaptation and Policy at the University of Hawaii law school; Jeff Mikulina, executive director of the Blue Planet Foundation, and Jim Tollefson, president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii. We’ll examine climate issues from our island perspective.

Energy Futures airs “live” 5-6 pm HST Mondays on KIPO-FM (89.3 in Hawaii) and is streamed at that time at HPR’s website. Listeners can call in with their questions and comments at 941-3689 on Oahu and 1-877-941-3689 from the neighbor islands and beyond.
