How has the threat of climate change transformed the environmental movement and environmental activists? On the next Your Call, we'll have a special Earth Day discussion with artists and activists working to raise awareness about everything from Keystone and

fracking to ocean acidification and rising sea levels. Issues like Keystone are politicizing people who’ve never been involved in activism before. How has climate change affected you?  Join the conversation at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What inspires people to get involved and take action? It’s Your Call with Malihe Razazan, and you.

Guests:

Gopal Dayaneni, from the Movement Generation Justice and Ecology Project in Oakland. 

Claire Greensfelder, project consultant to the International Women's Earth and Climate Initiative.

Subhankar Banerjee, photographer, writer, and activist.
