Jennifer Haverkamp

Jennifer Haverkamp from the Environmental Defense Fund speaks about developments in the US indicating that climate change issues are being taken more seriously in that country, including the creation of a cap-and-trade system in California that could include three other US states and also states in Brazil, and she talks about big companies like Apple Computer, Nike, Exxon, and PG&E that have pulled away from the US Chamber of Commerce for its opposition to climate change. But she says that the big question remains when – she stressed that she did not say “whether” – the US passes domestic climate change legislation, and she handicaps that process as well.
