The Fate of the Planet and Healthcare

The Senate Republicans just introduced another version of their own healthcare plan to replace Obamacare. We discuss how it will hold up against their previous plans with Anthony Wright (Executive Director of Health Access).

Next, we talk with Paul Ehrlich (Stanford Biologist), about his recent paper on the sixth mass extinction, a species die-out that will threaten our long-term survival if drastic and immediate conservation efforts are not made.

Finally, we get a radically different take on environmental data from Daniel Aldana Cohen (Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania), where he directs focus towards economic justice and hope rather than to the end of the world.
