(2/23/05, Aspen, CO) Auden Schendler, director of environmental affairs at Aspen, unpacks "How Are We To Live," by Pete Singer. The book is about ethics in an age of self-interest. Pinned to the wall behind him is a photo of his daughter Willa, who is 7 months. Auden feels strongly that it is his duty, it is all of our duty, to try and preserve whatever we can for the children to enjoy during their adulthood, and for their children to have and so on. If we continue down a path of mass consumption with little or no regard for the emissions, the waste, and the destruction it causes, then there will be nothing left for the young to enjoy. Auden says the ski industry will be dead in 50 years unless global emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases are cut bigtime. "A Change in the Air" - This is part of a series on climate change and this story is about the likely effects of climate change on the Colorado ski industry.
