EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks about Obama’s judicial nominee for Georgia’s Northern District, Michael Boggs, a judge so conservative he voted in favor of keeping the confederate insignia on Georgia’s state flag and to publically publish profiles of abortion doctors for prolife activists to target. Abby then speaks with Dr. Brenda Ekwurzel, Senior Climate Scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists about two new reports from NASA and the University of Washington that show Antarctica’s western ice shelf melt is inevitable and will lead to a 13 foot rise in sea levels in the coming centuries. Abby then talks about the media’s obsession with LA Clipper’s owner Donald Sterling’s new comments regarding Magic Johnson, AIDS and racism while ignoring reports that Syrian rebels are blocking water supplies in the city of Aleppo. BTS wraps up the show with a panel interview with Dr. Alem Hailu, African studies professor at Howard University and Richard America, economics professor at Georgetown University about the Boko Haram kidnapping in Nigeria, the western military assistance response and how the economics of the region has led to the rise of these extremist groups.
