Raymond Lotta on The Pope And Climate Change
In June, Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church, issued a major document on climate change. The Pope expressed deep concern over the state of the world, and the pressing need to deal with climate change. Many, including some from the Left and from within the environmental movement, see this Pope's encyclical as a boost to the struggle to stop the destruction of the planet.
Raymond Lotta, a political economist and writer for Revolution Newspaper/REVCOM.US, and an advocate for the new synthesis of Communism developed by Bob Avakian, strongly disagrees. He says the approach the Pope advocates is in fact dangerous for the movement that's trying to save the Earth, dangerous for the future of the planet.
He'll talk about the underlying cause of climate change, and the kind of massive and determined struggle people actually need to wage against global warming. He also touches on how a revolutionary society would deal with the question of the climate and the environment.

"The Princes of Kings Road"
We'll sit down with playwright Tom Lazarus, and actors John Nielsen and Ray Xifo from "The Princes of Kings Road", based on a true story. In 1953, path-breaking L.A. architects Richard Neutra and Rudolph Schindler, one-time friends and business partners who had been bitterly estranged for 23 years, found themselves, by a quirk of fate, in the same hospital room in Cedars of Lebanon Hospital.
The play shows what happens when vision and practical knowledge come together. It is presented by The Ensemble Studio Theatre, and is being staged at the Neutra Institute and Museum
