"Fareed Zakaria GPS" this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET.
On GPS this week, a memo to the president. Fareed convenes a panel of two former White House chiefs of staff and a man who has advised four U.S. presidents to answer this question: how should Obama craft a successful second term? John Podesta, Ken Duberstein, and David Gergen offer their take.
Also on the show, “big data” and the election. GPS looks at what campaigns know about you and how they use that information. New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg explains.
Finally, how to hurricane-proof a city. Jeffrey Sachs and TIME’s Bryan Walsh explain all.
“[T]he ocean level has risen in the eastern seaboard by almost a foot during the past century,” Sachs says. “And that means that storm surges are all the more extreme. The flooding, which was so destructive, is made worse by that. And the ocean surface to sea level keeps rising.
“And it’s rising because of the glaciers melting, the ice sheets thinning. And the risks of massive increase of ocean levels are very, very real. So that’s one very clear part of human-induced, long-term climate change during the past century.”
