    All Things Considered Global Fallout from the D.C. Debacle The temporary resolution of the U.S. government shutdown and debt ceiling issues means the feared disruption to the global economy has been avoided, at least for now. The program discusses how the renewed focus on political dysfunction in Washington has further tainted U.S. prestige and may jeopardize U.S. leadership.

    Radio Specials Burn Rising Seas -- You know all that abundant, dirt-cheap fossil fuel that's spurred the spectacular development of modern society? Turns out it's not as cheap as we thought. Hydrocarbon energy releases enormous amounts of heat-trapping gases into the atmosphere, and the Earth's oceans absorb about 80 percent of that heat. That means sea levels are rising, and they'll continue to rise for hundreds of years to come. While all coastal cities face real trouble, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says Miami is the most vulnerable, in its assessment of threats to 50 major cities worldwide. Parts of Miami will be permanently flooded in as few as 15 years. Host Alex Chadwick talks with people deeply involved in the issues of how and when sea-level rise will begin to inundate Miami, as well as the reasons why waters are rising so quickly along the Atlantic seaboard of North America. To get firsthand reports on the rapidly melting ice sheets of Greenland -- a significant cause of sea-level rise -- Neal Conan, former NPR host and reporter, and Gretel Ehrlich, longtime Greenland explorer and writer, go to Greenland to meet with leading researchers.

    Morning Edition J.D. Salinger's Letters Before the late author J.D. Salinger became famous -- and a recluse -- he actually answered his fan mail. Some of his letters from the early 1940s -- never displayed before -- are now on view in New York. The program offers a glimpse at Salinger's correspondence with a young Toronto woman.

    Forum The Supreme Court Revisits Campaign Finance Restrictions Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that some experts predict could have an even bigger impact than the Citizens United ruling from 2010, which eliminated the ban on corporate spending in elections. The ruling in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission could determine whether or not the government can limit individual donations to federal candidates. We'll talk about the case, the role of money in politics, and the rise of "Leadership PACs," fundraising committees that critics say are being used as unregulated personal "slush funds" for legislators.

    Forum Reducing Food Waste Forty percent of food in the U.S. goes uneaten each year, amounting to $165 billion annually. Those facts are hard to swallow in a country where one in six Americans lack a secure food supply. Food is wasted in many ways, but the largest culprit is food left on our restaurant plates, allowed to spoil in our refrigerators, or thrown out in the (often mistaken) notion that it has gone bad. We talk about food waste and ways we can consume more of the food we buy.

    Afghanistan's Education System -- It's one of the most touted success stories in Afghanistan: 10 million Afghans are now in school, and 40 percent of the students are female. That compares with about a million boys during the Taliban. But, on any given day, far fewer than 10 million are actually showing up to school. Some classes are still held in tents, many schools don't have books, and barely half the teachers in the country meet Afghanistan's certification standards. The program discusses the issue.

    Radio Specials Hearing Voices Home Team -- In anticipation for the World Series this week, the program shares baseball stories from the Public Radio Hall of Fame. First, the sounds of a St. Louis Cardinals' baseball game are combined with the echoes of Scott Joplin's ragtime and the distinctive calls of Bushy Wushy the Beer Man. The program hears from the 39-year veteran beer vendor at Busch Stadium, who shares his love for the game, the crowd, and the communal spirit of St. Louis. Also, at the Helena Brewers ballpark in Montana, teens get their first, and for most their only, taste of playing pro baseball.

    All Things Considered Rescuing Young Prostitutes The program discusses how law enforcement officials are rethinking the way they fight underage prostitution. More and more, they're treating prostitutes as victims of sex trafficking. And as they target pimps for arrest, they're trying to find help for the young women.

    All Things Considered The Significance of the Governor's Election in Virginia Tens of millions of dollars are pouring into Virginia in hopes of swaying the governor's election there. The program discusses how, if Democrat Terry McAuliffe wins, it could be a strong indicator that the once red, now purple, state is shifting into the blue column.
