Blair Horner: Earth Week 2020

Apr 30, 2020

Last Wednesday was the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.  For five decades, the world has marked Earth Day as a time to reflect on the state of the environment and to debate how best to improve the only habitat we have.

Earth Day Goes Virtual

Apr 22, 2020

Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. But plans to celebrate with outdoor festivals, big rallies and climate strikes have been scrapped because of the coronavirus pandemic. The observances have gone digital. 

        The Roundtable Panel: a daily open discussion of issues in the news and beyond.

Today's panelists are:
