Green Stories: Ripped from the Headlines – There Isn’t Any Climate Change Legislation on the Docket Right Now

During the episode “This Summer is What Global Warming Looks Like”, Nobel Prize Winning Climatologist Dr. Kevin Trenberth suggested that we can’t reverse climate change without strong legislative action. During the second show “What Climate Change Looks Like in the Nation’s Capitol”, noted meteorologist and climate change expert Dr. Jeff Masters made a shocking statement – at least shocking considering that we’re less than 90 days from our next presidential election: “There isn’t any climate change legislation on the docket right now.” That statement is the headline we’re peeling back in today’s show with Senior Legislative Representative from Earth Justice, Sarah Saylor, who will discuss how that can be, and what we can do about it.
