Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination today but, on the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders is not ready to concede to Hillary Clinton. We hear what the Party is doing to make peace and whether it's working.  

Later on the program, on the tenth anniversary of An Inconvenient Truth, a conversation about climate change — and politics — with former Vice President Al Gore. 

Iraqi Forces with US Help Attempt to Retake Fallujah from ISIS 6 MIN, 14 SEC

Some 50,000 civilians are said to be trapped in the Iraqi city of Fallujah after this week's launch of a major assault to re-take the city from ISIS. Shiite militia are fighting alongside Iraqi soldiers, and the US is conducting bombing raids — while keeping its distance from what's happening on the ground. Liz Sly, Middle East correspondent for the Washington Post, has an update.

Will Party Concessions Put Out "The Bern?" 32 MIN, 40 SEC

Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump "a divider, not a uniter." But it's Bernie Sanders who's dividing her own Party. Hoping to make peace, the Democrats have given him a big voice in the party platform…only to have him promise to make the process "messy." His appointees include a supporter of Palestinian rights and one of President Obama's harshest African-American critics. So, as the campaign heats up in California, the battle continues — despite Clinton supporters who warn that it's making life easier for Donald Trump.

And, of course, the world is still getting hotter every month, despite the global influence of An Inconvenient Truth and the changes in policies and practices it has helped to inspire. We're joined by the former Vice President, who has a lot to say about climate change and a little about presidential politics.
