Listen online to Tom Goldtooth, executive director of the Indigenous Environmental Network, discuss the World Bank's carbon trading scam, where corporations pay money so they can continue to pollute.
Listen to Goldtooth's interview with Earthcycles on the Longest Walk Talk Radio:
The protest of IEN and Indigneous Peoples in Bali, over the carbon credit scam and exclusion from climate talks, was the subject of an article on this blog, Censored News, which was selected last week by Project Censored as one of the 25 most censored articles of 2007-2008. The article will appear in the 2009 Project Censored book.
Special thanks to Jihan Gearon, Navajo, and Ben Powless, Mohawk, Indigenous youths representing IEN in Bali, for their photos and articles.
