The 2020 Election & the Climate Apocalypse

The 2020 Election & the Climate Apocalypse

A Democrat and a Republican walk into a room and have a deeply thoughtful and friendly debate about one of the most polarizing topics in politics today: climate change. With only 10 years remaining to dramatically change our behavior and economy, the Political Climate podcast team come together in the session "The 2020 Election & the Climate Apocalypse" to discuss pathways for climate action, growing engagement of the electorate, successes and failures in climate communication and how the 2020 election sets the course for generations to come. Produced in partnership with the USC Schwarzenegger Institute and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, Political Climate's mission is to normalize these bipartisan conversations and demand tangible action from our elected leaders.
