Refugees from Climate Change in Alaska Native Alaskans are living through a climate-change wake-up call for the US and the rest of the world. As sea ice that's protected coastal villages from harsh winter storms melts away, there's no system to help communities that have to move. We hear about the desperate plight of Eskimo villagers in what looks like a preview of what's to come in more heavily populated locations. It's hard enough to rebuild after one-time events like Katrina or Sandy. Can we prepare for the relocation that might be required by slow-moving disasters?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?

The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?

On the second half of the program, we hear about cuts in Obama-Era civil rights programs called for by the Trump Administration's first budget plan.
