Sat, Jan 5, 2013 -- 1:00 PM Intelligence Squared U.S.

Should End-of-Life Care Be Rationed? -- Just because we can extend life, should we? If health care is a scarce resource, limited by its availability and our ability to pay for it, should government step in to ration care? In other words, how much is an extra month of life worth? The Oxford-style debate program takes on these questions.

James Hansen 'Storms of My Grandchildren' -- NASA climatologist James Hansen has grown increasingly concerned about the risks of climatic tipping points which could bring catastrophic consequences. His recent research identifies human fingerprints on specific instances of extreme weather such as Superstorm Sandy, putting him out in front of many of his peers. In 1989, Dr. Hansen was the first person to testify before Congress about global warming. Currently the world's preeminent climate scientist, James Hansen is head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, adjunct professor at Columbia University's Earth Institute and author of "Storms of My Grandchildren."

Tue, Jan 1, 2013 -- 12:00 AM Toast of the Nation

Count down, sing along and dance to live music all night long. Travel from coast to coast with four celebrations of midnight from time zone to time zone. It's the perfect holiday special for any New Year's event. Spirited, improvised, grooving, and swinging, with strings, horns, voices and drums, each segment is a stop in a sequence of parties, each one contributing something new to the musical feast. WBGO's Rhonda Hamilton anchors, with additional voices along the way.
