From a promise to bring coal jobs back, to the decision to leave the Paris Agreement, to a budget proposal that cuts funding to environmental and climate programs across government agencies, U.S. climate and environment policy is facing significant shifts following the election of Donald Trump. The Environmental Protection Agency in particular finds itself a target of the new Administration's efforts to roll back regulations that it claims stymie economic growth.

To gauge what some of these shifts will mean, Host Jason Bordoff (@JasonBordoff) speaks with Carol Browner, the longest serving United States Environmental Protection Agency Administrator. They discuss: How the Trump Administration's proposed budget cuts will impact EPA; The effects of the Trump Administration's agenda on climate change progress; The role of local and state governments to combat climate change; The outlook for fuel economy standards in the US; Nuclear energy's role in a low carbon transition.
