Lessons from Laura: The Climate Minute

Two big ideas: The Climate Minute

No matter who becomes president, global action on climate requires cooperation between the US and China. Spending trillions of dollars on a Green New Deal here in the US requires us to reshape our financial structures. Think about it.

Cost of smog gives new perspective on stopping climate change: The Climate Minute

Air pollution- the particles and smog that come from burning fossil fuels- are even more damaging than we had realized. We can justify moving to renewable energy just on these health costs alone.

Forecasting a stormy election season: The Climate Minute

Complacency about the normalcy of our upcoming election is a danger. From Covid pandemics to mail delays, political dirty tricks and Russian interference, the run up to our election will be turbulent.

An important take-away: the House should reform its ‘rules’ to allow for public transparency of how bills are treated as they go (or don’t go) through the process of becoming law.
