Diocese Bankruptcy, Climate Change, Credit Without a Social Security Number


Aired 4/19/09

The Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy amid hundreds of allegations of sexual abuse by priests. How will this decision affect the financial future and the pending lawsuits against the diocese?

Also, climate scientists at UCSD's Scripps Institution of Oceanography played an important role in a recent report on global climate change. How can San Diego and California become global leaders in fighting the effects of global warming? 

 And, a recent decision by Bank of America to offer credit cards to people without social security numbers has drawn both criticism and praise. Is the plan a progressive idea, or a decision that only benefits Bank of America?
