Today on Planet Money:

Reports say Timothy Geithner has been tapped as the next U.S. Treasury secretary. How big of a mess might he face? We asked one of the original Cassandras, and the answer is so not pretty.

Christine Walravens asks whether the recession will help slow down climate change. Oil Drum contributor Gail Tverberg says yes, but . . .

Peter Schiff was right — that's the message on YouTube. The president of Euro Pacific Capital and frequent TV commentator spent the past few years telling anyone who'd listen that America was heading for a recession. Now he tells us what he expects next.

— NPR editor Uri Berliner looks at the example of Schiff and considers whether the network saw the crisis coming.
