The Climate Pod

Jul 22, 2020

This week, Tom Steyer joins the show again to talk about his new role as chairman of Joe Biden's Climate Engagement Advisory Council and get his thoughts on the vice president's new climate plan. We also discuss how to drive climate-concerned voters to the polls, what he's learned founding and working with NextGen America, and how he plans to help win down ballot races with GiveGreen.

Then, world-renowned climate scientist Dr. Johan Rockström, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, explains why he's deeply concerned with new climate modeling data that could suggest greater climate sensitivity to carbon emissions and faster global warming as a result. Dr. Rockström explains how we should react and why 2020 is still a super year for climate action. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss their reaction to Biden's climate plan.
