The Bolivian Climate Revolution
Arthur Girling has been in Bolivia for Climate Radio and his report for ResonanceFM, is now available.
“When Bolivian President Evo Morales announced the summit two weeks after the UN meeting in Copenhagen, it could have been easily dismissed as an attention-grabbing stunt. Bolivia was one of the most vocal opponents of the ‘Copenhagen Accord’, the non-binding document that emerged on the last day of talks in 2009.
“But Morales got the timing right. After the cynicism and recriminations of the failed summit, civil society, climate campaigners and governments see hope in his positive message of rights and justice.
“Arthur Girling travelled to Cochabamba to learn about new political proposals from some of the world’s poorest countries. 48 minutes of political debate, music and talk of revolution from ‘the city of eternal spring’.”
Update: As of 11 May 2010 a new version of this programme has been uploaded, with some additional clean-up and post-production work by Arthur.
