Rising Up With Sonali

Govt Climate Scientists Leak New Report to Press

Federal government scientists, worried about climate science suppression, have leaked the final draft of a damning report on global warming to the press. On today’s show we’ll speak with Liz Perera, Climate Policy Director of the Sierra Club for an understanding of why the report was leaked and what it says. Then, Mark LeVine will join us to help explain why Israel is going after Al-Jazeera. The Qatar-funded media network was threatened with a ban by Israel’s Communications minister, following Saudi Arabia’s demand for its closure. Finally, David Cole, Legal Director of the ACLU will discuss a new anthology he has edited called Rules for Resistance: Advice from Around the Globe for the Age of Trump.
