On today’s show, we revisit the green new deal and the Sunrise Movement. We take a deep dive on the best path toward decarbonization - will a carbon tax be enough? Or do we need more robust government intervention? Tune in and let us know what you think in the comments. Bonus: Ted has tucked a Moby Dick reference in your stocking. Check it out.

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
