Political Analysis - Fossil Fuel Industry Celebrates COP 18 Failure - 12/11/12
Dec 11th, 2012 by progressiveradionetwork at 5:00 pm

Tonight on Political Analysis, Sandy LeonVest spends the first half-hour of the show connecting the dots between the utter failure of the UN-sponsored international climate talks in Doha (COP 18), America's "natural gas boom" (code for more hydrofracking) and cheaper gas (in the US) just in time for consumers to enjoy the holidays, as they drive off the "climate cliff."

Lisa Maldonado, executive director at the Northbay Labor Council (California) joins Sandy during the second half-hour to talk about the so-called "Right to Work" initiatives currently taking the nation by storm -- and what looks to be a major battle brewing between labor unions and corporate legislators on both sides of the political aisle.
