Climate Talks in Warsaw as Philippines Gets Relief from Typhoon Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines and that's raised a challenging question this week at a little-noticed conference on climate change being held in Warsaw: should industrialized nations compensate more vulnerable countries in a world of rising oceans and super storms? The cause of global warming remains controversial, and there's no science that connects a specific storm to climate change. But there's no doubt that icecaps are melting while oceans rise — and that super-storms are more common than they've been before.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
