We talk with Sarah Sax, a climate justice journalist, about the importance of libraries for today and tomorrow. Libraries has morphed into community resources beyond just books: they are often the only way a community can have internet access, cooling, other resources in a warming world. They are part of a vital social infrastructure that can support community resilience.
We talk with Arunradha Mittal, founder and executive director of the Oakland Institute, about the role of the World Bank. Founded to help poor countries manage in a global economy, it has made those countries poorer and more vulnerable to exploitation by richer countries, to the detriment of the people and the environment.
