Hopenhagen? No, Thanks: Naomi Klein on COP15

Naomi Klein, author, activist, and columnist for The Nation, tells
The UpTake's Jacob Wheeler what she thinks of Obama's language of hope
permeating the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen.
In short: The action and funds it would take to make a real difference
are not even on the table.

Klein does find hope, however, in the
new alliances forming around the environment. Organizations previously
focused on international trade and poverty are starting to work on
climate change.
