Terrence fills in on the air for Warren Olney - "To the Point" on 89.9 KCRW Santa Monica and KCRW.com

While we've made some progress addressing climate change, dispute and paralysis have been all too common. Even among those who accept that global warming is real, there's disagreement about what it all means, how to talk about it and how to respond. Guest host Terrence McNally explores what we can do in terms of both prevention and adaptation. How do we realistically deal with the politics and economics in order to get things moving? Also, debt ceiling negotiations continue, and an end to the military policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
