We Almost Fixed Climate Change. Why Couldn't We?

2018 has been a hot, wet, fiery summer around the world. From record temperatures in China, to wildfires across the western United States, Sweden and Greece, and devastating floods in India and Japan. Today, we take a look back at the decade between 1979 and 1989 that was the key window for the U.S. to address climate change; a discussion on how the fight is playing out over blueprints for 3-D printed guns; we continue our look at AIDS with a closer inspection of the epidemic among black gay, bisexual and trans individuals; and we end with our look at the intersection between race, place and health.
