Abstract:

New studies show that the devastation of Indonesia's forests has helped to make the country the world's third-largest emitter of carbon dioxide. Can the trees be saved by selling their carbon credits? And if so, will small farmers whose livelihoods depend upon clearing the land reap a part of the profits? This Wide Angle report takes a balanced look at the concept and implementation of carbon credits, profiling both an entrepreneur championing the plan and a farmer who fears he will be adversely affected and unable to make ends meet. In addition, former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack speaks with Aaron Brown about global warming and the need for America to innovate more aggressively-and to become a more responsible global citizen.
