The Climate Pod

Jul 20, 2022

Last week, Sen. Joe Manchin may have ended the possibility of new federal spending on climate provisions. Or at least it seems that way. What we know is that for the last year and half, people all over the world have waited and watched to see what Manchin would accept to push the United States toward meeting it's commitments in the Paris Agreement. And now, that answer may be nothing. In his recent piece, Joe Manchin’s Fickleness Is a Needless Catastrophe, The Atlantic's Robinson Meyer unpacks the saga and why this time feels different. He joins the show to discuss his piece as well as explain the very real implications for the Senate's massive failure and what could happen next.
