"The biggest obstacle (to addressing climate change) is money in politics. The fossil fuel industry in this country and their friends on Wall Street very much want to see a continuation of the status quo. It's not just the industry or the recipients of corporate welfare, it's their friends in Congress and the Obama administration. They don't want to see this change which is absolutely critical."

– Karen Orenstein, international policy analyst with Friends of the Earth, on what's preventing international action addressing climate change.

While the people of the Philippines work to recover and rebuild lives shattered by Typhoon Hiyan, delegates from around the globe were gathered in Warsaw, Poland for the United Nations Climate Change Summit. The typhoon that devastated the eastern Philippine islands of Samar, Leyte and Negros on Nov. 8, was the most powerful storm of its kind recorded in world history. It’s estimated that almost 4,000 people lost their lives and some 4 million were displaced as a result of the storm.  Story continues

Interview with Lily Hamourtziadou, news collector and recent events editor with Iraq Body Count, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

With little attention from U.S. corporate media or Washington politicians, violence has dramatically increased in Iraq since the withdrawal of U.S. troops there at the end of 2012. Suicide bombings and other indiscriminate attacks on both the military and civilians have risen sharply this year, many attributed to militant Sunni groups and/or al Qaeda in Iraq. Iraq’s Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki recently traveled to Washington requesting U.S. support to rein in the violence, even though his exclusion of the Sunni minority from a meaningful role in his government has, according to many observers, contributed to the escalation of violence.  Story continues

Obamacare's Flaws and Shortcomings Reinforce Activists' Push for 'Medicare for All' Universal System

Interview with Dr. Margaret Flowers, Maryland pediatrician and co-director of It’s Our Economy, conducted by Scott Harris

Since the rollout of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act on Oct. 1, the health care reform law has run into problems, first with technical breakdown of the program’s national website, and then complaints about the cancellation of individual insurance policies that did not meet the new law’s minimum standards for more comprehensive coverage. Not surprisingly, Republicans in Congress have focused attention on the troubled launch of the Affordable Care Act and have attempted to repeal or delay key provisions of the individual mandate that requires most Americans to purchase health insurance by March 31, 2014 or face penalties.  Story continues
