Climate Migrants: Millions More Could Be Displaced by Global Warming as Carbon Emissions Rise

Wed, 12/12/2018 - 13:00
We continue our conversation with Harjeet Singh, who has been observing how the U.S. and other big polluters are hindering climate talks in Katowice, Poland. This comes as countries from the Global South warn that without drastic action to confront climate change they face annihilation, and millions may be forced to leave behind destroyed homes they cannot afford to rebuild. Singh is the global lead on climate change for ActionAid. He’s been working with climate migrants in several countries, and he is based in New Delhi, India.

Remembering KPFT's Ray Hill, Pioneering "Prison Show" Host and LGBT Activist in Houston

Mon, 11/26/2018 - 13:00
Ray Hill, a co-founder of Pacifica radio station KPFT in Houston, Texas, died Saturday from heart failure. He was 78. After his release from prison in 1975, Ray helped organize Houston’s first gay rights groups as well as the first National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1979. As general manager of KFPT in 1980 he created The Prison Show, which he hosted for 20 years, combining news with on-air phone calls from families and friends so they could speak to their loved ones behind bars. Ray Hill’s tombstone will reference his proudest achievement: a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in 1987 that he was unconstitutionally arrested for interrupting police officers performing their duties, after he yelled at them to stop beating a man in his front yard.
