Bolivia's climate crisis -- Avi Lewis

Avi Lewis' 9 June Fault Lines video covers the water crisis that faces Bolvia and other Andean nations, and the Cochabamba climate conference

His wife Naomi Klein, a research consultant for the piece, writes, "It is no surprise that Bolivia is emerging as a leader of the global South in the fight against climate change. And its climate negotiators have become eloquent advocates for a new, big idea that is reinvigorating the climate justice movement: climate debt. Avi Lewis asks what the historical polluters of the global North owe the poor countries of the South -- and how such an honest reckoning could encourage the global, technological collaboration demanded by our climate crisis."
