It's Down to the Wire on Climate Agreement in Copenhagen In Copenhagen today, dozens of developing countries—including China, India and Brazil—threatened to walk out of climate talks , insisting that the developed world isn’t doing enough to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Cold Water Hits Global Warming Agreements Developing nations threatened to walk out of Copenhagen today, dramatizing the split between rich and poor that has haunted climate talks for 20 years. Who should move first to reduce greenhouse gases? Do developed nations, like the United States , owe something to those most threatened, like Tuvalu in the South Pacific? What about China, India and Brazil -- fighting poverty by industrializing now — in the process creating a new group of major polluters? We look at issues that could derail the best of intentions on dealing with Global Warming.
What happens when America retreats from the world?

León Krauze guest hosts.

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.
