Climate Reparations?

Climate Reparations?

By Stephanie Seferian

A hotter planet is here, my friends. Don't believe me? Just turn on the news. On today's show we first break down major current climate events; we then ask ourselves a set of ethical quandaries. Should the global north pay reparations to the global south for its centuries-long polluting behaviors, or are the inequitable and unjust natures of climate change simply bad luck?    Here's a preview: [4:00] How'd summer go?
