On this edition of Your Call's media roundtable, we'll discuss coverage of today's global climate strikes. The turnout so far, from the Pacific Islands to Europe, has been massive. We'll also discuss the Covering Climate Now Project. More than 300 media outlets, including KALW, have been covering the climate crisis all week.

On this edition of Your Call, we speak with investigative reporter Ramita Navai about “UN Sex Abuse Scandal,” a new Frontline documentary airing tonight on PBS. In conflict zones around the world, United Nations peacekeepers sent to protect the most vulnerable have been accused of preying on them since the early 1990s.

LEGISLATION

On Your Call, Thursday December 20th we aired a pre-taped conversation looking back at climate change activism over the last year.  What strides have we made? Where have we fallen short?  The UN climate talks in Doha, Qatar this month didn’t seem to move the international community any closer to solutions.  So what needs to be done?  Can local actions make a difference?  What are we facing for climate change in 2013?
