With Australia moving forward on climate policy and California linking up with the European Union's Emissions Trading System, will the United States be forced to enact some form of carbon policy? During today's OnPoint, Tim Flannery, author of the new book "Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet" and chief of Australia's Commission on Climate Change, discusses Australia's progress on climate policy. He also explains his idea of humans as a superorganism and its impact on the Earth.
