Rising Up With Sonali

Is Trump Pushing North Korea Into a Corner?

Is Donald Trump pushing North Korea into a corner and making war more likely? On today’s show we’ll turn to John Feffer of Foreign Policy in Focus about the developing story and if it is a war of words as usual, or something more. Then, Shaye Wolf of the Center for Biological Diversity will join us to discuss how Hurricane Harvey’s impact on Houston includes the millions of tons of chemicals released into the air from refineries and petrochemical plants. The pollution will have a long-term impact on public health yet there is little discussion from government, industry, or the media about it. Finally, Patty Lovera of Food and Water Watch will analyze the recent Amazon.com acquisition of Whole Foods and what it means for consumers and their access to fresh, healthy food, as well as the ability of small-scale farmers to sell. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
