The wildfires, heat waves, droughts and floods impacting the Northern Hemisphere represent "the face of climate change," says Michael Mann, professor of atmospheric science at Penn State University. Also, in 1834, 14-year-old Afong Moy was brought to New York City by traders, who displayed her in a museum. She was the first Chinese woman to set foot in the United States. We learn more about Moy's little-known story, told in playwright Lloyd Suh's new play "The Chinese Lady."
