The Climate Pod

Apr 1, 2020

This week, we feature a lengthy and remarkable interview with Dr. Leah Stokes, author of the new book "Short Circuiting Policy," about the pathway to clean energy laws. What have we learned from previous decades? How have powerful interest held back progress? Has the urgency for clean energy policy changed in the era of the coronavirus? We ask Dr. Stokes all this and more on this week's show.

Also, Ty and Brock discuss the EPA regulation freeze, the weakening of auto emissions standards, and growing mullets in the time of quarantine.
