On today’s show, we’ll look at some of the sensible and senseless proposals for curbing global warming and the disasters associated with it. Then, we’ll learn about the unintended consequences of “operation Babylift,” the U.S. government’s 1975 effort to place thousands of Vietnamese children with families overseas. Also, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Barak Goodman discusses his new documentary about the 1968 My Lai massacre. And, Salman Rushdie and Caro Llewellyn talk about this year’s PEN World Voices Festival—the only international literary festival in the U.S.
