With a bipartisan agreement reportedly in place on a smaller Senate infrastructure package, President Biden has signaled he will not sign the bill without additional legislation to address climate change. Sen. Tina Smith (D-MN) joins to talk about why the clean electricity standard is essential to good climate policy and action on the crisis, how it can pass through the Senate's reconciliation process, and how the standard actually works. 

Then, Allison Fisher, director of the climate and energy program at Media Mattersjoins the show to talk about their new study on Special Report with Bret Baier and how Fox News' flagship news hour is using its platform to spread climate misinformation and doubt.
