Rising Up With Sonali

How Badly Did Equifax Mishandle Its Data Breach?

ifaxThe US’s oldest credit reporting company, Equifax, recently revealed that the data of 143 million Americans was hacked. But what did Equifax know, when did they know it, and how have they treated those Americans impacted? On our show today we’ll turn to Jamie Court, President of Consumer Watchdog for more. Then, as Hurricane Irma leaves behind untold destruction in the Caribbean, Florida, Georgia, and even South Carolina, we’ll turn to Joshua Frank about how the Trump Administration is quietly expediting the permitting process to export Liquified Natural Gas, a fossil fuel. Finally, even though Trump has pulled US commitment out of the Paris climate accord, all is not lost. A growing number of US states and cities are carrying on the fight for climate justice and vowing to fulfill the Paris Accord. My guest Elizabeth Sawin will explain.
