Two steps forward, two steps back. The Biden admin is sending mixed messages on climate - Velshi MSNBC

This summer of extreme weather continues, as July is set to be the hottest month in recorded history. Nearly 200 million people in the US - or 60% of the population - are under heat advisories or flood warnings this weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Scientists have declared that the heat we are experiencing this summer is “virtually impossible” without human-caused climate change - most of which is caused by fossil fuel emissions.

And while the Biden administration has made strides in addressing climate change, they also continue to invest heavily in new oil and gas projects. “You can't do subtraction while you continue to add,” says Ebony Twilley Martin, the Executive Director of GreenPeace USA. - Aired on 07/30/2023.

Velshi: When every eligible voter can cast a ballot, democracy is better for it - Velshi - MSNBC

The Republican party, including Donald Trump, is adopting a new strategy for voter turnout in the 2024 elections: mail-in voting. It’s amusing given how Trump vilified early and absentee voting before and after the 2020 election. Trump and his allies tried to convince voters - without evidence - that mail-in voting was rife with fraud.

Long before his outright attempts to overturn the 2020 election, Trump's disinformation campaign against mail-in voting planted a seed of doubt in the minds of many Americans. The efforts to discredit mail-in voting and stoke fear about unsubstantiated voter fraud had serious consequences. Many Red states reacted by imposing restrictions that have made voting more difficult. - Aired on 07/30/2023.
