TreeHugger Radio: Republicans and the Planet


This week’s podcast is an interview with the remarkable Martha Marks, the co-founder of president of Republicans for Environmental Protection, nature photographer, and inspiring optimist. In 1995, along with a small group of women, Marks decided it was high time to revive the spirit of conservation in the Republican Party. She speaks with Simran this week about how political labels have been turned topsy-turvy, how environmental history will judge Bush, and what the business world has to say about global warming. Also, stay tuned for the full-length podcast of this powerful interview. Catch TreeHugger Radio each week on Air America’s EcoTalk, here on, or juice up your iPod on iTunes.
