The global offshore wind industry is booming as China and Europe break records for the size and scope of their projects.
Record-breaking heat waves in Oregon and Washington State. Wildfires rippling through the West. A looming season of hurricanes.
These weather events take a toll on human life and strain our energy infrastructure.
But to what extent are extreme weather events made worse and more frequent by human-caused climate change?
This week on the podcast, climate scientist and Columbia Professor Adam Sobel speaks with host Jason Bordoff about the latest science behind attributing extreme weather events to the changing climate.
They discuss the limitations and possibilities of this kind of attribution science and why making these connections matters.
In late June, Congress voted to undo former President Trump's rollback of methane regulations that were put in place during the Obama Era.
The move was a major milestone, but federal methane rules are just the beginning, and the battle to curb methane emissions promises big shifts for the entire natural gas industry.
Host Bill Loveless speaks with Cate Hight, Principal at RMI, the Rock Mountain Institute.
They spoke about the technology behind figuring out how much methane is in the atmosphere in the first place and the levers of policy and power that need to be pulled in order to curb emissions.
The fight for climate justice in America presses on with signs of hope after a year of spirited activism and a new president. But the process of untangling the thicket of inequities in the energy system is far from over.
Dr. Robert Bullard is one of the visionary leaders helping to make sense of this moment.
He's known as the "Father of Environmental Justice" and has written 18 books at the intersection of racial justice and the environment.
He speaks with Host Bill Loveless about what it will take to ensure that the Biden Administration's climate plans and appointments are infused with justice principles, including how a progressive climate agenda can reform the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
