What’s next for Brazil as candidates face runoff election?

(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service …  A new report on climate change says 2.5 percent of global GDP needs to be spent each year for two decades to stop global warming. We hear from the co-chair of the International Panel on Climate Change. Then, Brazil’s voters handed a previously fringe candidate nearly half the vote in Sunday’s election, but he’ll face a runoff election  at the end of the month after failing to secure a majority. What does that mean for a country facing continued economic hardship? After, we’ll take you to Sulewesi in Indonesia where schoolchildren are heading back to the classroom after a catastrophic tsunami and earthquake killed at least 1,900 people. Today’s show is sponsored by Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com), Navy Federal Credit Union (navyfederal.org) and PayPal (paypal.com). (10/08/2018)
