climate change? the u.s. and china are the biggest polluters. is there an appetite to do something about that? what has to be done to awaken. we want to talk about that with our pachbl. we have bill ney along with coral davenport. and the director of strategy at energy initiative at george mason university. and sam stein, a white house correspondent and political editor with "the huffington post." coral, i will start with you. you're covering this this week. if you could give us the bottom line of what this report is saying. people have heard so many reports with warnings and dates and targets. what's the bottom line that this report is trying to tell us? >> this report was about policy. we have heard report after report after report about what the science tells us. bad stuff is coming. we're going to probably very likely tip past this 3.6 degree tipping point before the end of the century. this report laid out what governme governments need to do to make that not happen. it said there is still time to do something. the window is very rapid. it essentially said that governments hav

instability not only in egypt, but throughout the region. the brotherhood, much like china. this is very much, but at that time they didn't have the social networks and a lot more resilience across the sort of young, islamic crowd than there used to be. we were looking at those in tahrir square who were prodemocracy and maybe not part of the muslim brotherhood crowd. but they're using the same techniques. >> are we at a point where we talk about political reckoncil reconciliation the goal everybody had in mind for this. you had the democratically elected president which termed out of office and now hundreds being killed who are protesting him being killed. is it even possible that there could be a political reconciliation in the political future? >> the biggest concern i have when i look at this, separate from the political issues. if you look on facebook and twitter and have egyptian friends, almost a complete dehumanization of the other. this is going on both sides. you hear people saying that the people, the brotherhood protesters are not really egyptian. i don't know what they're sup

, actually. we all know this. also the big expansion of low wage jobs in china. so the unfettered, you know, trade with china has actually -- this import penetration causes low wages too. we went along with it. and many chinese employers are really just part of american companies. so it is not really chinese workers, it is american workers using those global supply chains. >> that's such a great distinction. well, like we were just talking about, since workers face such barriers to unionizing, we are seeing movements like our walmart that richard is involved with taking to the streets and trying to figure out with labor laws as they are how they can still have a voice. and i know you work with a lot of these types of organizations. what sort of models have been effective in providing workers with a voice in the absence of a union? >> we have seen union density decline from 35% in the 1950s, the amazing history lesson you just gave, to less than 30% today. we had to figure out -- workers had to figure out a way to organize. it is important to know that you don't have to be in a union to

about military cuts but then we would only have a military as big as china, russia and england combined. i think he'll start talking about the loopholes and forcing his republican counter parts to defend the loopholes which would make life more comfortable for the richest among us. the only way to drive a wedge is to let the social conservative know these guy guys are fighting for wall street. >> the president is going to propose $56 billion in additional spending and it appears that he will pay for it largely by closing corporate loopholes that are really unacceptable to the american people. let's go out and have this debate and force the republican to defend what really is an untenable position. >> that's exactly what the budget is u. it is a debate of democrat values versus republican values. the president's budget hasn't really gotten anywhere in the last couple of years. it is a vision of what he wants and what he would like the see, similarly with the republicans when they put forward their budget. i mean the fights, the big fights over the budget, the rye onmurray, that'

solutions. the problem with that is that a lot of other nations like china, india, brazil and others have grown in their capacity and not taken on a lot of these public good responsibilities. so we're there essentially as a kind of guarantor, but we don't do everything and you have regions like the middle east where the sense of america's weakness has changed the behavior not only on of our foes, but it's changed the behavior of our allies who don't count on the united states as much as they did. so the equilibrium that we basically used to have has broken and it was shattered completely with the invasion of iraq which opened up -- which created chaos in iraq, but it also open onned up, and that fe paranoia and that's what we have today. the invasion of iraq was a game changer and it has punctuated in the minds of many people around the world how weak the united states is on a relative basis and that is the problem we're in. >> colonel jackson, you brought up libya in our last block, and i want to play something, talk to you about something president obama said to tom friedman in "th

in the end our reachout in the end to china changed their long-term ambitions to dominate the region. as we see, that's the iranian goal in this region. that's what everybody perceives in the region. that's no what we're responding to at least until today. >> ambassador jessica taylor with the hill. we've seen congress being resistant to foreign policy. do you think the administration think this is their last chance to get the policy footprint out there and sort of bolster their legacy? >> that's a very good point and it gets back to the earlier point about the two administrations. it's not good to compare two presidents. they're all different. president bush took a different one. he left office in much better shape than a few years before. president obama has basically ignored the results of the elections that gave both houses to the republicans and he surely does not want to work with them they don't want to work with him either. we're in a real mess back here as we try to present a united front. >> as we reported at the top of the segment. andrea andrea michtchell over in s

supervision which is all in the deal, what do you go back to? the fact is china and russia will defect, there will be no more sanctions against iran, iran will resume what it had been doing until this diplomacy of the president began. that is to say, increasing the number of centrifuges, moving steadily closer to a bomb, and no president of the united states i think, would be prepared to accept a nuclear-armed islamic republic. at that point the question becomes, what do you do? i think military action probably at that point becomes the only way. now, prime minister netanyahu in the webcast to major jewish organizations said he found the president's contention that this would lead to war if the deal failed. outrageous. and i think this was typical of the way that the prime minister of israel has managed, whether intentionally or not, i think probably not, but he has offended president obama. he has very rarely said thank you for all the support that this president continues to give israel and will, i'm sure, do so until the end of his term despite these differences, and it's ver

. whereas iran thought with russia and china's help russia in particular wants to sell arms to iran and be able to get back into a very lucrative business there, with russia's help iran was basically dividing the security council. the first time we've seen a real division among the negotiating parters here on what's called the p 5 plus one, the security council permanent members plus germany. that created enormous strains. vladimir putin exploited that. in a previously scheduled summit including iran's president rouhani on thursday and friday in moscow. there was a lot of tension back and fourth blame back and forth. i think part of this was both the u.s. and iran trying to show the critics t hard liners if you will the hard liners in iran that want to kill any deal the critics of this that include some prominent democrats as well as a lot of republicans and republican candidates in both capitals who would like to kill the deal even though they don't know the details yet. their reached on the emerging deal has been very very negative. each side each negotiator zarif on one side foreign
