The Climate Pod

Sep 16, 2020

This week, Rep. Mike Levin (D-CA), who represents California's 49th district, joins the show to discuss how Congress should handle the ongoing wildfires, why he's leading an effort to urge more climate change questions at the upcoming presidential debates and vice president debate, and how his experience fighting for climate action inspired him to run for Congress. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss misinformation around the Western wildfires and Hiroko Tabuchi's reporting on secret recordings of oil executives' private views on climate change.
