How Developing Nations Are Fighting COVID-19 – And Winning
With 5 million recorded COVID-19 infections and 160,000 deaths, the coronavirus has paralyzed the United States – the richest, most powerful country in the world. And we know this was preventable, because at the same time, countries with far fewer resources have kept infection and death rates remarkably low. Even with its close proximity to China, where the pandemic started, parts of Southeast Asia have managed to control the coronavirus far better than the U.S. and most of Europe. What are Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar doing that the rest of the world finds itself unable to do? World Affairs hears from journalists, epidemiologists and doctors about the quick decision making that went into these countries’ successes. What can we learn from them?

Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Isabel Wilkerson Examines America's Caste System
In her new book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson presents an examination of what she sees as America’s often disguised, but very real, caste system. The book compares America’s system with those in India and Nazi Germany, and delves into how America betrays its ideals of meritocracy by instead cultivating an insidious hierarchy based on race. “Caste” is a much anticipated follow up to Wilkerson’s 2011 book “The Warmth of Other Suns,” which detailed the decades-long migration of Black people from the South to other regions of the country. Wilkerson joins Forum to discuss her new book and how America’s past relates to its future.

UCLA Study: Less Snow and More Rainfall Spell Trouble for California
By the 2070s, climate change will reduce snowpack and increase extreme rainfall in the Sierra Nevada and California’s reservoirs will likely be overwhelmed. That’s according to a new study by UCLA climate scientists, who predict that run-off during so-called atmospheric rivers will increase by nearly 50 percent, leading to widespread flooding across the state. We’ll talk about the impact of climate change on Sierra weather patterns and what it all means for the state’s water supply.

How Climate Change Could Cause Massive Global Migration
In the next 50 years more than a million climate migrants could come to the United States from Central America if nothing is done to curb carbon emissions. That’s according to a new model that predicts where refugees from regions decimated by decreased crop productivity, water shortages and rising sea levels may move. The model, developed by ProPublica and The New York Times Magazine, finds that climate change will likely cause “the greatest wave of global migration the world has seen.” Forum talks with ProPublica environmental reporter Abrahm Lustgarten about future climate migration and the experiences of those who have already left their homes because of the changes caused by a warming planet.

The Takeaway
Placing Blame in Beirut
After the explosion in Beirut, The Takeaway checks in with Lebanese-American reporter Sulome Anderson to hear her thoughts on how the Lebanese diaspora is responding to the chaos. It has been shown that the explosion in Beirut was due to government mismanagement. Protesters took to the streets in Lebanon, demanding an end to the regime, placing blame for the explosion. Sulome Anderson has a history of reporting from Lebanon. Her father, Terry Anderson, was the Associated Press journalist who was taken hostage in 1985, so she has seen conflict in her country since she was born. But as Sulome points out, the blame of the explosion and recent crises should be placed on the corrupt Lebanese state, which has continued to sow divisions among sectarian lines, and neglected to discard the explosive material that led to the misery.

‘It Was All a Lie’
Fresh Air’s Dave Davies talks with political analyst Stuart Stevens. He was a strategist for dozens of Republican campaigns, including the presidential bids of Bob Dole, George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. He’s since resigned from the consulting company that supported Republican candidates. He writes in his new book that the party’s support of President Trump reflects the party’s complete abandonment of principles it long claimed to value, such as fiscal restraint, personal responsibility and moral courage. Stevens’ new book is “It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump.”
