AlterNet Radio: Sandy Versus Climate Change Deniers; Karl Rove Still Poisoning Our Politics

This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, we talk to Tina Dupuy -- who's experienced not one but two hurricanes in the last couple of months -- about relief efforts on the East Coast, and whether these extreme weather events will ever cause climate change denialism to go out of fashion on the right.


Then we're joined by Craig Unger, author of the New York Times best-seller, House of Bush, House of Saud. Unger has a new book out, Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove's Secret Kingdom of Power. We'll talk about the man once known as "Bush's Brain" -- and his remakable re-emergence at the top of the Republican establishment.

Finally, we speak to Sarah Anderson and Scott Klinger, authors of a new report about the "Fix the Debt Coalition" -- "10 Filthy-Rich, Tax-Dodging Hypocrites Pushing Disastrous Austerity on America."

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 4 pm EST at 1480 AM. If you're anywhere else, you can stream it live at  We Act Radio , and if you miss it, check back later for a podcast.
