This is a wide-ranging and wonderful episode. First, we are joined by Earther's Brian Kahn to talk about ecofascism and the dangerous discourse occurring around climate around the globe. Then, we ask Vox's David Roberts a whole lot of energy policy questions that span carbon taxes, electric vehicles, renewable energy goals, the filibuster, The Green New Deal, Waxman-Markey, New York's new plan and the devastating impact of the dying coal industry in Wyoming. Pretty wide-ranging, right?!
