Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Before we get to the increasingly disturbing situation on the ground following Hurricane Irma in Florida and elsewhere, and why that storm and Harvey before it were so terrible in the first place, a few news items of note today. Democrats took over two different state legislative seats in special elections on Tuesday -- one in Oklahoma and one in New Hampshire. Both races were in districts that Trump won by very large margins last November. The victories for Dems,- including huge swings from 'R' to 'D', are of a piece with a series of other special elections held so far this year, including 4 in Oklahoma alone. Former President Jimmy Carter offered some noteworthy comments on North Korea that President Donald Trump may wish to notice, and also some words about worldwide democracy and the need for public oversight of ballot counting. In the meantime, GOP "voter fraud" fraudster and vice-char of Trump's so-called "Election Integrity" Commission, Kris Kobach, made some wildly misleading claims about "voter fraud" in New Hampshire, and was blasted by panelists, members of his own commission, and NH's Sec. of State to his face during the Commission's second public meeting, held Tuesday in...New Hampshire! Then, after an update on the death toll and deteriorating conditions in some parts of Florida following Hurricane Irma, we're joined by Penn State University climate scientist Dr. Michael E. Mann, to discuss what made Hurricanes Harvey and Irma so historically extraordinary (and deadly) and why -- despite claims to the contrary by top officials in the Trump Administration and their fellow wingnut denialist community -- now is absolutely the right time to discuss the growing impact of our climate crisis, and the relationship between that and hurricanes, flooding, wild fires, drought and more across the globe...  Brad Friedman, Michael Mann, Desi Doyen
