The world remains stubbornly silent on the persistent extermination of Rohingya Muslims in Burma, where the besieged minority faces on-going horrors including rape as a weapon. We’ll turn to Simon Billeness, Executive Director of the International Campaign for the Rohingya for more. And, the Oroville Dam in California’s Sacramento Valley faces imminent danger, prompting the evacuations of hundreds of thousands of residents. Juliet Christian-Smith, Senior Climate Scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists will discuss how the nation needs to be better prepared for the strain that extreme weather is putting on our infrastructure in our new age of global warming. Plus, author and academic William Goldsmith joins us to discuss his new book Saving Our Cities: A Progressive Plan To Transform Urban America.
