Earth Day ’08: Climate Change and Green Energy – A View from the South

Global warming will not affect all of the planet’s people equally: it is those in southern countries with the fewest natural and financial resources who will find it hardest to adapt to climate shocks. Join Francis ole Sakuda and Daniel Salau of the Simba Maasai Outreach Organization (SIMOO) in Kenya as they discuss the realities of climate change for indigenous communities in Kenya and elsewhere. They’ll also share details of how they’re using solar power to bring fossil-fuel free energy, and new opportunities, to rural communities off the grid. Co-sponsored by Brighter Green, the Sierra Club NYC Group and Tribal Link Foundation.
