Happy 50th Earth Day! This week, Ty and Brock discuss a wide-range of climate news! With oil prices dropping like a surprise Beyonce album, what could that mean for the fossil fuel industry? Also, how can we use the current pandemic to reshape our cities in a better, healthier way? Brock once read a Jane Jacobs' book in college so maybe he can answer (he can't). Finally, should we watch this new Michael Moore documentary (we won't)?
Then, we're joined by the LA Times' clean energy reporter Sammy Roth to talk about how COVID-19 is impacting the renewable industry. We discuss how California may differ from the federal response to clean energy and why past stimulus efforts have made a difference.
