We hear from Emily Wirzba, policy associate with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, who works on issues with sustainability and the environment for the Quaker faith-based organization. She talks about the an approach to discussing climate change with policymakers involving faith and call to morality. Wirzba also gives advice on how citizens can start a dialogue with their elected officials on environmental issues.

Then we talk with journalist Sina Toossi who recently wrote a story for Foreign Policy in Focus arguing that there is a lobby pushing the bombing of Iran by the US in 2016.
