Can we live sustainably on this planet, and if so, for how long?

Also, we speak with The Nation's Michael Klare, author of The Race for What’s Left: The Global Scramble for the World’s Last Resources.
After World War II, Baltimore had numerous social and pleasure clubs for the working man; it seemed like there was one on every corner. But as manufacturing declined and people moved to the suburbs, many social clubs disappeared. Today, however, some are enjoying a resurgence and looking to rejuvenate their ranks with a new generation. We talk with members of the Arch Social Club on Pennsylvania Avenue; Ducky’s Pleasure Club in Canton; and the Polish Home Club in Fells Point.
We continue our coverage in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. We discuss the relationship between 19-year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is in custody, and being questioned, and his older brother Tamerlan, who was killed by authorities.
Almost as soon as the Boston Marathon bombs exploded, the news media gave wall-to-wall updates on the blasts and the ensuing manhunt for the suspects. Douglas Rushkoff, technology and media commentator for CNN, talks about how we’re adapting -- or not -- to such an immediate, crushing flow of information. Rushkoff is the author of Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now.

Our guests: Ari Shapiro, NPR White House correspondent; Michael Reisch, professor of social justice at the University of Maryland School of Social Work; and Barry Rascovar, political commentator and communications consultant.
