How World Leaders At Davos Shirked On Climate



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Caroline Henderson, a Senior Climate Campaigner for Greenpeace.

This year’s global gathering of world elites in Davos, Switzerland brought new and urgent attention to climate change. The World Economic Forum attracts heads of state and corporate leaders each January to discuss the state of the world economy. This year hopes were high as the WEF annual Global Risks Report prioritized the impacts of climate change. But, with moneyed interests dominating the gathering, there was little action behind the rhetoric.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
