Global warning: The UN sounds the alarm on climate change

Description

The UN has just released its annual report on how well the fight to slow climate change is going. It finds that efforts to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions are going from bad to worse. We also look at a surprising new lease on life for China’s regional dialects. And while people debate about the merits of Uber, one thing is clear -- it drives people to drink -- or so new research suggests.

Well, I will no longer be listening to this podcast. I'm sure you do not care but when you make a list of the world top polluters that haven't agreed to cut back emissions and China & India aren't on that list.....well you guys are crazy. the world's top polluters and nothing is said about them. The US doesn't have to be in some dumb club with the EU to cut back emissions.
