Center for Global Development's Roodman ranks industrialized countries' enviro policies

Each year, the Center for Global Development ranks 21 industrialized nations on how their policies affect poor countries. This year the ranking, called the Commitment to Development Index (CDI), focuses on the environment. During today's OnPoint, the CDI's author, David Roodman, discusses the findings of the report and the United States' last place ranking. He talks about why the CDI was expanded to include Brazil, Russia, India and China this year and explains how the findings play into the push for a new international climate policy.
