Among the thousands of people attending the United Nations Convention on Climate Change, which draws to a close this week, are several Vermonters. One is Marlboro College student Andrew Tanabe, who's studying international relations. Tanabe speaks with us this morning by a Skype phone link from Copenhagen. And he says his ticket to a first-hand look at the conference was punched by his involvement with a non-profit group working for sustainable development.

Tanabe speaks with VPR's Mitch Werlieb.
