Govern America | April 25, 2015 | Climate Wiggles

Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant


Bird Flu is back with outbreaks in Iowa and Minnesota. New incident brewing in Oregon between the American people and the Bureau of Land Management. Will these clashes become more frequent? Is this a sign that the American people are getting fed up with the bullies? Organization of American States recently held a meeting in South America on hemispheric cooperation on police training, police management, social transformations, and community policing. Wood stoves are under fire. We discuss carbon sequestration and the future of gardening. Duke University has a new study on Global Warming. The USDA has a new "climate mitigation" plan. Obama has a new push for Fast Track Authority and so-called "Free-Trade" agreements. We lay out some details from the investment chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership with an emphasis on international tribunals and schemes which are connected with the World Bank.
