This week's show...
Our top story is the ongoing negotiations at the UN climate change conference in Poland. Environmental ministers convened yesterday for the final two days of the meeting. We'll touch on the highlights from the past week and discuss what must happen next if a treaty is to be arranged by December 2009.
Also, a new report suggests the price of solar power will drop significantly next year. We'll explain the factors involved.
An interesting project involving IBM and Harvard University researchers is using idle computers around the world to search for a more efficient type of solar cell.
And we'll talk about Barack Obama's choices for his environmental and natural resources team.
Plus, get a quick catch-up on a proposal for a massive wave energy project, the first off-shore wind farm in Canada and a Blackstone investment in next-gen ethanol.
(correction: Bart opens the podcast with the incorrect statement that it is December 2009. He was confused by his excitement for the new year and a new administration.)
