The Story of Stuff w/Annie Leonard--Consumers & Climate Change

Categories:
program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/03/2008

 

Much of what is said about responding to climate change and the coming climate crisis puts the responsibility on the consumer, on the individual.  We're told to buy fluorescent light bulbs, or hybrid cars, or recycled paper, or other products - and that's supposed to somehow save us from massive species extinction.  Or we hear about 'carbon trading', a system that will allow the largest polluters to keep polluting at the same level.

Neither the current administration, nor any of the candidates, have put forward a plan that really recognizes the seriousness of the situation we're in.  At the current rate of climate change, we will face massive species extinction - including the human species - within decades.  The UN Commission on Climate Change has recognized this, the scientific community worldwide has a consensus that this is a reality, yet the US economy continues rushing forward like a steamroller toward this certain death.

But despite the resistance of government and industry, there  are people and groups who are developing a real plan that  can  address and reverse the trend of global climate change.  We'll hear from several of them tonight on this special program on Sustainable solutions to climate crisis.

First, the Story of Stuff, with Annie Leonard.

Portland's City Arts Owes Artists: Two Months After Closing

When City Arts LLC opened in November 2006, gallery owners hoped it would be like Saturday Market with a roof. But fourteen months after opening, the gallery owners have had to tell about ninety artists that the gallery would be closing.

Now, almost two months later, many artists have yet to be paid the remaining balance owed them for sold artwork.

The city also wants its money, serving the owners with a lawsuit on March 18th in an attempt to collect the unpaid rent.

Sculptor Michelle Gallagher, was the first artist to file a small claims court lawsuit against City Arts owners for the money she’s owed.

That was sculptor Michelle Gallagher, who is one of dozens of artists still waiting to be paid for artwork sold by City Arts Gallery.

Some artists are standing behind the City Arts owners and blame the pitfalls on a fickle art economy.
