Winning The Clean Energy Transformation

Humankind is facing its gravest threat ever: climate chaos. Solving this threat will require ingenuity and innovation. A dramatic transformation is coming in every aspect of our lives; one that will profoundly impact our economy and the jobs it supports. Will this transformation further exacerbate disparities across regions, race, and incomes? Or will it be a tremendous opportunity for innovation that creates new jobs and prosperity that’s shared more broadly? The answer will depend largely on the policy choices we make. Senator Merkley sits down to discuss his vision for confronting the threat of climate chaos and how we can create a clean and renewable energy economy that drives widespread opportunity and prosperity.
