2016 Election: The Impact of So Many Republican Candidates
Rich Rubino
Political Analyst & Author
"The 2016 election isn't until November 2016, but it seems like there is a new Republican candidate entering the race every day, while the Democratic party seems to have thrown its support behind Hillary Clinton.  This is the exact opposite of how the parties have acted in the past.  What will it mean for this election and those in the future?"
Rubino is a walking encyclopedia of political knowledge, has his finger on the pulse of all the candidates and prospective candidates, and can compare these candidates to those who have run for election in the past. He is the author of three books: "The Political Bible of Humorous Quotations from American Politics," "Make Every Vote Equal: What a Novel Idea," and "The Political Bible of Little Known Facts in American Politics." He blogs regularly for the Huffington Post and has made numerous TV and radio appearances.

NOAA State of the Climate Report
Jeffrey White
Professor and Director, Integrated Program in the Environment
Indiana University School of Public & Environmental Affairs
In light of releasing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's 2014 State of the Climate Report, White says: "The data continue to tell the same story – Earth's heat budget is straining under the pressure of increasing greenhouse gases. The report of new records in several key climate markers should not surprise us. Earth's land, ocean and atmosphere system is absorbing the heat with dramatic consequences that will play out in complex ways over time."

25th Anniversary of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Lee Page
Senior Associate Director of Advocacy
Paralyzed Veterans of America
"We've accomplished a lot in the past 25 years, but there's still a lot of work to be done in certain areas like fair housing, transportation, air carrier access. You can legislate people's civil rights, but can't legislate people's attitudes."
Paralyzed Veterans of America was the leading veteran's service organization dedicated to ensuring the passage of the ADA. Page is based in Washington, D.C.
