    Special Edition: Climate Crisis in a Divided World

    Play Episode Listen Later Oct 16, 2021 16:31


    Climate change has become one of the most divisive political issues facing America. It didn't use to be this way. Gallup surveys show in the late 90s, about half of both Republicans and Democrats believed we were already seeing the effects of global warming and many in both parties also blamed human activity. But opinions have become more and more divided over the last two decades. What happened? We're talking about it with renowned climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe. She says it was her faith as an evangelical Christian that first inspired her to focus on climate change as a career and later to write the new book “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.” She doesn't shy away from saying climate change is real. But she also focuses on finding common ground and calls on all political parties to pitch in with possible solutions.   This episode is brought to you by BetterHelp.com/newsworthy and Rothys.com/newsworthy Get ad-free episodes and support the show by becoming an INSIDER: www.theNewsWorthy.com/insider

    Women and girls in Afghanistan face an uncertain future now that the Taliban controls the country. A generation of women has been able to work and go to school, something they weren't able to do the last time the Taliban was in power.  The Taliban have promised to be more moderate this time around. But this week, Taliban leaders told women and girls to stay inside for now because they say the group's soldiers haven't been “trained” on how to respect women. Guidance like that has many women worried about what their lives will look like, especially once the U.S. and news organizations have left and the world pays less attention. We're talking about this today with women's rights expert and executive director of the Arab Institute for Women, Lina AbiRafeh. She spent two decades as a humanitarian worker overseas, including four years in Afghanistan.
