Hundred of thousands of citizens hit the streets of New York for yesterday’s People’s Climate March. But who’s paying attention? Major polluters including China, India, Russia, and even Germany won’t even attend the Climate Summit at the United Nations tomorrow. Leaders are worried about the cost of controlling carbon emissions, despite reports that economies might even grow faster. President Obama put the US in the forefront with new rules on power plants.

Also, Turkey closes its border in response to a surge in Syrian refugees. Plus, a new look at terrorist threats against America.
