Wildfires, Election Interference Highlight Political Inaction On Key Issues : The NPR Politics Podcast As wildfires rage across the west, activists are noting the campaign's relative silence on the issue of climate change. Natural disasters of all sorts, from heat waves to hurricanes, are made worse as humans continue to increase their emissions.

And the Treasury Department and Microsoft have disclosed new election interference efforts by foreign powers, including Russia. The disclosures come the same week a whistleblower alleged Trump administration officials pushed intelligence staff to downplay findings that could make the president look bad. The administration denies the claims.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, campaign correspondent Asma Khalid, science correspondent Lauren Sommer, and voting reporter Miles Parks.
