The Climate Pod

Feb 29, 2020

This week, a coalition headed to Washington D.C. to try to halt changes to the National Environmental Protection Act. WE ACT's Kerene Tayloe, Director of Federal Legislative Affairs, was part of the coalition and joins the show to explain what is under threat, how to oppose the changes, and what WE ACT is doing as an organization to help support environmental justice.

Then, the Washington Post published an Op-Ed this week comparing Sen. Bernie Sanders' approach to climate to President Trump's just weeks after refusing to publish an Op-Ed by scientists that support the Green New Deal. We talk to two of the scientists that signed their name to the Op-Ed about the content of the piece, why they wanted it published, and why it's important for scientists to have a voice on the Green New Deal.
