Aside from the anger over the lack of charges against officer Darren Wilson, a lot of questions continue to be raised about County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch and how he has run the entire investigation so far.

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.

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.

GUESTS FOR WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2014 ON THE JEFF SANTOS SHOW: Green Day Wednesday - Historic US-China Deal To Cap CO2 Emissions! Chicago Sun Times' Columnist Mark Brown Explores Chicago Election Robo-calls! The President is in China where he announced new joint goals for capping Greenhouse gas emissions. That's a positive move in a green direction for the world, but as a counter to that, we'll ask Rona if having the Republicans in charge of both the House and Senate now is going to slow down gains in moving to a greener, cleaner, U.S. economy.

- Rona Fried - Founder & CEO of www.SustainableBusiness.com, a global news and networking website dedicated to green business. It's "Green Day Wednesday" and we catch up on the latest stories Rona's following in the world of Green News...the President is in Asia this week where he announced an historic but "secretly negotiated deal" with China for the two nations to reduce greenhouse gas output. China has agreed to cap emissions by 2030 (or sooner) and to also increase its use of zero-emission energy sources by 20% by then as well. This is the first time China has agreed to cap emissions. "The United States has pledged to cut its emissions to 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2025."
We'll ask Rona how things are looking for the green economy, now that the Midterms are over and the Senate has changed hands and will be under Republican control. How did ALEC do? They're already chomping at the bit about the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement may get hurried through as well now...

- Mark Brown, local news columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times where he writes about everything from political corruption to family life. We've been looking into voting irregularities in Chicago last week and the disruptive robocalls sent out to election judges the evening before the election. Our guest has been writing about the robocalls and the post-election fallout at the Chicago Sun-Times, and we'll find out where things are at this point, one week after the election.

- Jim Warren, DC Bureau Chief for the New York Daily News, former Managing Editor of the Chicago Tribune. Congress returns to Washington for the first time since the Midterms today...what is the mood in D.C.? We'll do a little post-election politics and then ask Jim Warren, who lives both in Chicago and in Washington D.C., what he thinks about the way the vote was handled in Illinois and especially Chicago last Tuesday. And in consideration of the big loss for the Democrats last Tuesday, Jim's Sunday NY Daily News Op Ed took a look back at "candidate Obama" after his first political "shellacking" in 2000 in defeat against Bobby Rush.

- John Businger, Former Massachusetts State Rep from Brookline for 28 years. Chief advocate for the Boston North-South Station Rail Link. Today at 2:30pm Eastern Time, Governor Deval Patrick participated in a ceremony, to designate Boston's South Station as "the Governor Michael S. Dukakis Transportation Center at South Station", because of the Governor's work over many years with rail transportation and as a former board member at Amtrak.

- John Nichols, Washington Correspondent for the Nation Magazine and co-author of the book Dollarocracy, How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America. After a few days of licking their wounds from last week's election, where do progressives go from here? John's latest post at theNation.com talks about how out of hand the money in this last election was -- making this a "dollarocracy, not democracy". And will get the take from Wisconsin on the voting irregularities and shenanigans in the Chicago election last week. Why are people calling for a recount? Are there votes that haven't been counted? What about those robo-calls to Chicago election judges? The culprit behind the robocalls has been identified! Will there be an investigation?

- Former PA Congressman Patrick Murphy, an Iraq War veteran with the 87th Airborne. He currently hosts the MSNBC program Taking The Hill, which airs monthly on every 4th Sunday. On the eve of Veterans Day, as 1,500 new U.S. Combat troops will be heading to Iraq... we'll discuss the situation for American Veterans, recent changes at the VA, and the big problem of suicide and combat veterans. Congressman Murphy has been looking at suicide in the veterans community and the critical need for suicide prevention awareness. We'll also ask Patrick about what's coming up on Taking The Hill in the next episode!

- Earl Bender, President of Avenel Associates, political strategist at Totten Communications and regular contributor to the Jeff Santos Show. We continue the conversation about the Chicago election and ask what Earl's found out about it ... and of course, we'll probably get to some political strategy and reflect on Veterans Day, as 1,500 U.S. non-combat troops are heading to join others in Iraq.
