AIRED:
October 21, 2007 Losing the American West; Plumpynut; Spy Exposed The American West is quickly disappearing due to a single degree temperature increase. Further proof that global warming is changing the landscape of the world is the lengthening fire season in the West. Scott Pelley reports about the mega-fires that are now plaguing areas in America. Interviews with Tom Swetnam (University of Arizona) and Tom Boatner. CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper reports on this next story about ‘Plumpynut’, a remarkable product that has saved countless babies and toddlers from death due to malnutrition. What is it, where is it and why aren’t we hearing more about it? Don’t forget, Andy Rooney wraps up our program, but before he does, Katie Couric interviews Valerie Plame Wilson in her first ever interview. Valerie is the U.S. government spy who was exposed when her identity was leaked to the media. An 18 year career ended with a careless or manipulative decision that could be tracked all the way to the White House.moreless
