Green Day Wednesday Takes a Hopeful Look at Climate Change w/NRDC President Frances Beinecke! What do YOU Think will eventually happen with the Keystone XL Pipeline?

- Frances Beinecke, outgoing President of the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), "one of the United States' most influential environmental action groups, uses law, science and the support of 1.3 million members and online activists to advance comprehensive solutions to today's biggest environmental challenges". President Beinecke will be retiring this December after over 40 years on the forefront of the Environmental movement and fighting Climate Change. She has a new book out -- "The World We Create: A Message of Hope for a Planet in Peril" -- in which she lays out a visionary plan for the United States to tackle climate change and stamp out its carbon footprint in our lifetime. We'll talk with President Beinecke about her new book and hopeful vision for the planet and tackling Climate Change; her thoughts on how the environmental movement has evolved during her time working in the field over the last 40 years; current issues such as the Keystone XL Pipeline project proposal and votes this week to approve in the House and reject in the Senate as well as recent EPA Carbon emissions guidelines, fracking, etc.
