Climate Scientists Now Connect Extreme Weather with Global Climate Change
Interview with Kevin Trenberth, senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research , conducted by Melinda Tuhus 
 
Record-setting weather events -- vast floods along the Mississippi River and shockingly destructive tornadoes in the South -- have dominated the news in the U.S. for the past several weeks. Up to now, climate scientists have always been careful to say that no particular weather event can be linked directly to climate change. But many climate experts are now pointing linking climate change directly to some of these weather-related disasters.

Religious and Class Divisions Stoke Popular Uprising in Syria
Interview with Joshua Landis, director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma, conducted by Scott Harris
 
The popular uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa which succeeded in ousting the governments in Tunisia and Egypt have for the past two months also unexpectedly taken hold in Syria. Although western journalists have not been permitted into Syria to report on police attacks on demonstrations, more than 850 civilians are estimated to have been killed, with at least 8,000 arrested.

Although National Media Spotlight is Gone, Progressive Mobilization Against Wis. Gov. Walker’s Conservative, Anti-union Agenda Continues
Interview with Ben Manski, coordinator of Wisconsin Wave , conducted by Scott Harris
The enormous protests in Wisconsin during February and March -- organized to oppose Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s legislation that would have all but eliminated public employee unions’ collective bargaining rights -- have tapered down in recent weeks. But although the national media spotlight has dimmed on the spirited movement that saw over 100,000 demonstrators descend on, and occupy the capitol in Madison, the progressive campaign to derail Walker’s hard right conservative agenda goes on.

For Fatah, New Unity Pact with Hamas is Risky, but Few Options Remained
Interview with Chris Toensing, editor of Middle East Report, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
On May 4th, Fatah, the Palestinian faction that rules the West Bank, and Hamas, the Islamist faction that controls Gaza, signed a pact in Cairo that would unite the two rival parties to form a transitional government and hold long-delayed elections in both territories within a year. Because Hamas has refused to renounce violence or recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state, Israel condemned the move, while the Obama administration is taking a wait-and-see approach.

Nuclear Adviser Resigns over Japanese Government's Increasing Level of Allowable Radiation Exposure for Children
Interview with Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist and author of "Physics of the Future" , conducted by Scott Harris
 
The March 11 Japanese earthquake and tsunami that killed 14,700 people and left an estimated 11,000 missing also destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant complex in the north of the country. On April 21, the Japanese government evacuated residents living within a 20-kilometer radius of the disabled nuclear complex -- and barred them from returning to their homes due to increased levels of radiation.

The nation and world were caught by surprise on May 1, when President Obama unexpectedly appeared on television networks to announce that a special U.S. Navy Seal assault team had raided a compound in Pakistan, killing al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The news of bin Laden’s death came almost 10 years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York’s World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and a crashed airliner in Pennsylvania, resulting in nearly 3,000 deaths. In cities around the country, thousands of Americans took to the streets to cheer the news of Osama bin Laden’s death.

Obama told Americans that the world is a better place with the death of bin Laden, even as U.S. intelligence agencies and the military prepared for the possible launch of retaliatory attacks by al-Qaeda supporters. Not long after news of bin Laden’s death was announced, some members of the former Bush administration maintained that information used to locate bin Laden was obtained by torture, or what they euphemistically call harsh interrogation techniques -- in an attempt to justify the controversial policy illegal under international law -- and later banned by President Obama. The justification of torture was disputed by many, including Sen.
