Poor urban dwellers are already suffering from the impacts of climate change, and their plight is likely to get worse. As the UN climate change talks in Warsaw enter their final stages, delegates heard how people living in slums all over the world are fed up waiting for political decisions, and taking action themselves through the “Momentum for Change” initiative.

How does the simple act of planting trees lead to winning the Nobel Peace Prize? Ask Wangari Maathai of Kenya. In 1977, she suggested rural women plant trees to address problems stemming from a degraded environment. Under her leadership, their tree-planting grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment and to promote democracy, earning Maathai the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004.

Nobel Peace Prize, Right Livelihood Winner Wangari Maathai (1940-2011) | Democracy Now!

http://www.democracynow.org/2011/9/29/nobel_peace_prize_right_livelihood_winner
The Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, died on Sunday at the age of 71 after a battle with cancer. In 1977, she spearheaded the struggle against state-backed deforestation in Kenya and founded the Green Belt Movement, which has planted tens of millions of trees in the country. She has also been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights and democratic development. In 1984 ,she won the Right Livelihood Award. Twenty years later, she won the Nobel Peace Prize, becoming the first African woman to do so. We air excerpts of her 2009 interview on Democracy Now! and of her 2004 speech when accepting the Nobel Peace Prize. [includes rush transcript]

http://www.democracynow.org/2009/9/25/nobel_peace_laureate_wangari_maathai_if
A new overview of research on global warming has found climate change is happening faster and on a broader scale than scientists projected in 2007. The new findings come in a week where the issue of global warming is at the fore with a one-day UN summit on climate change and the G-20 in Pittsburgh. We speak with the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Maathai, who was chosen to speak on behalf of international civil society at the UN summit.
