Listen to a sound montage of some of the voices in this past week's news.

This week we hear Al Gore, former vice president of the United States and producer of An Inconvenient Truth, and Kevin Conrad, the Papua New Guinea delegate to the climate change talks in Bali, Indonesia.

We also hear Paula Dobriansky, under secretary for Democracy and Global Affairs in the U.S. State Department; Scott Brown, chief economist with Raymond James & Associates; and Robert Brusca, chief economist with Fact and Opinion Economics.

Clips from George J. Mitchell, former Senate majority leader and investigator of baseball's steroid scandal; Allan H. "Bud" Selig, commissioner of baseball; President George Bush; Lt. Col. Nick Goulding of the British Army; and Maj. Gen. Graham Binns of the British Army round out the piece.
