Today on the Signorile Show

3:30pm ET - We've been talking about the calls for boycotts of Russia over their anti-gay propaganda laws and how this will affect gay athletes competing in the games and fans going to watch the games and support their teams.  But what role does the International Olympic Committee play in the planning and are they to blame for the outrage we're seeing against Russia regarding their hosting their Olympics?  Minky Worden, Director of Global Initiatives with Human Rights Watch, joins us this afternoon to explain.

4:30pm ET - Last week, Anthony Ingraffea, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell and President of Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Healthy Energy, wrote a piece in the NY Times in which he, as someone who helped develop the methods for fracking, argues that those embracing it as a renewable clean energy are misleading the public and warns how it is leading us to a warm future.  He'll lay out those warnings with us today.
