UpFront – the World Bank on Climate Change

The World Bank has a new report out painting an apocalyptic vision of what climate change holds for our future — we’ll discuss it with a vice-president at the bank, and ask why her organization’s still funding coal-fired power plants.

Sonali Kolhatkar discusses the geopolitics of the standoff with rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

And Democracy Now’s Sharif Abdel-Kouddous joins us from Cairo to report on the largest demonstrations to hit the country since the fall of Hosni Mubarak.
