Climate Change and Public Health, France Doggy Bag law and Quechua language revival

We’ll look at the relationship between climate change and health with Dr. Sarah Lovinger of Chicago Physicians for Social Responsibility, Brian Urbaszewski of the Respiratory Health Association and Dr. Peter Orris of the University of Illinois School of Public Health. France just passed a law requiring all restaurants to provide takeaway boxes for customers who request them. Louisa Chu joins us to talk about how the new law is being received. And on Global Notes, Tony Sarabia brings us the story of Renata Flores’ efforts to revive the ancient Incan language, known as Quechuan, among Peru’s youth through song.
