Episode Description 
Monsanto reports earnings the day after yet another report on the economic impact of global warming. Agriculture will be affected, though the disruption in the U.S. may be a matter of moving around which crops are grown where. Plus, the Google developer conference opens Wednesday in San Francisco, and the company is trying to boost gender and racial diversity by offering scholarships to the event. We take stock of this and other broader initiatives designed to make the coding world more diverse. Also, is the tech industry relocating? First, there was Silicon Valley. Then the tech industry surged up into San Francisco. Now it has hopped across the bay into Oakland. But the start-up scene there is distinguishing itself with a new brand. Diversity. And after, Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the "world's busiest" when it comes to passengers. But it doesn't crack the "top 30" in terms of cargo, a list that includes Louisville, Anchorage and Indianapolis.
