KNX In Depth
Thursday, August 22nd
The world's lungs are choking with smoke and the consequences could be dire for all of us.

Wide swathes of Brazil's Amazon rain forest, responsible for producing 20-percent of the world's oxygen supply, are on fire right now........and this comes at a time when deforestation of the Amazon has been increasing.  There are political and economic issues wrapped up in this story of a possible environmental disaster and we're going In Depth on all of it.

Cory Booker, the New Jersey Senator running for the Democratic presidential nomination, says "environmental justice" is a central part to his campaign.  The senator, in California to speak at the state's Democratic party convention, talks with In Depth about climate change, reforming the country's health care system and his long-time, up-close view of President Trump.

Continuing our "home for recess" series, we sit down with San Fernando Valley Congressman Brad Sherman on In Depth.  He argues that American foreign policy has become dangerously erratic and unpredictable under President Trump, who he fears is just way too cozy with way too many autocrats.

We talk foreign policy, bracing for a possible economic downturn and his war on Bitcoin with Congressman Sherman.
