The Climate Pod

Dec 29, 2021

When Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in 2020, it marked a massive shift for the direction of the United States' action on climate change. And once President Biden was inaugurated in 2021, his administration brought big expectations to the Oval Office for how it would combat the crisis.

So what would Joe Biden commit to through executive action? What would Congress pass to fight climate change? How would the United States repair its own reputation on climate action on the international stage?

We answer all of those questions and more in Part Two of The Climate Pod's 2021 Year in Review: The Biden Era Begins, featuring clips from interviews we've conducted with guests like Governor Jay Inslee, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, Sen. Tina Smith, Dallas Goldtooth, Jane Kleeb, Rep. Sean Casten, Rep. Donald McEachin, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Time's Justin Worland, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Dr. Michael Mann, and many more
